CLAIM IT
For people living with serious mental disorders, institutionalization at state mental health hospitals is often the only option. This overburdened public infrastructure generally only provides medication with no other interventions. This lack of appropriate care limits exit options for patients, ignores long-term needs, decreases recovery outcomes and puts them at risk of spiraling further down into poverty and homelessness. An estimated 48% of the inpatient stays are long-term users.

Innovation Description

Building on lessons from the Banyan’s hospital, this project will offer alternative living spaces in urban and rural communities for women living with moderate-to-severe mental disorders and intellectual disability, who otherwise face homelessness or institutionalization.
How does your innovation work?
Providing housing options with graded levels of support, the project aims to offer inclusive, long-term housing solutions for people living with mental health in a sustainable and a cost effective manner. It is expected that access to such living arrangements will improve the well-being of at least 80 people.
