Mental Health Advocacy
Our agency provides advocacy services for adults with disabilities transitioning from the hospital and/or incarceration back into community living. The advocate can assist with benefit advisement, locating doctors, housing, and for Food Stamp (SNAP) benefits. This program can also facilitate support groups upon request.
We visit the local hospitals and jails regularly to provide outreach, and to make sure those that are nearing discharge dates are well informed of the services and assistance that is available to them through our programs. Our representatives also attend Regional Advisory Committee meetings and other conferences to introduce our services and to receive information about other available programs.
