How can an adult with mental illness find housing?
Options for housing include rent subsidies or supervised apartments or group housing (Securing-Stable-Housing).
Unfortunately, housing for low-income individuals with mental illness is in very short supply and waiting lists can be very long, so it is helpful to apply as early as possible.
