Family support services assure that families have the necessary personal support, information and skill to cope, to maintain family integrity, and to enhance the likelihood that children with serious emotional disturbance can successfully remain at home. Service elements include respite care, care and education, telephone trees, parent support groups, parent case manager training, home aide services, transportation, and advocacy services.
Supported living services, either through specialized residential programs or through case management and other services which support persons living in their own homes, are available throughout the State. Individuals with serious psychiatric disabilities are provided with services necessary to address both their housing and mental health/rehabilitative needs. Eight of the nine mental health planning regions have at least one residential program for adults, and three of the regions have at least one group home for adolescents.

The types of housing resources available for adults include group homes, supervised apartments, respite apartments, board and care homes, foster care, and individual residences with support. For adolescents, housing is limited to group homes and foster care.
