Mental Illness – Treatment & Recovery Supports
A good and modern behavioral health system is one that emphasizes mental health as essential to overall health and in which prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover. For mental illness, treatment and recovery require both a comprehensive and effective continuum of care and access to strong community-based supports, including housing.
