Program that provides home and community-based services to children and adults with disabilities who require the level of care provided in a nursing facility. These services are an alternative to institutionalization. They help a person live as independently as possible in community settings and promote optimal health, independence, safety and community integration.
Our work demonstrates that people with psychiatric disabilities can lead productive, dignified, and valued lives in the community:
- We are committed to eliminating discrimination that restricts opportunities for people with disabilities to live and work in the community.
- We believe that people with psychiatric disabilities should have a voice for promoting social justice and positive change within the mental health community.
