D6: Exploring Reentry Strategies for Those Living with Serious Mental Illness: A Guide for Professionals

Those re-entering society after long term institutionalization face many barriers and stigma, putting housing out of reach. Come and hear from the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services as they discuss how their services can overcome barriers to housing for people experiencing serious mental illness who are returning to the community after correctional or psychiatric institutionalization. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences to further enrich this presentation.
