Having safe and affordable housing is a critical need for individuals with serious mental illnesses to help them recover and live in their own communities. State Mental Health Authorities (SMHAs) work with local governments, other state agencies, and provider organizations to help develop and provide appropriate housing options for individuals with mental illnesses. In 2022, NRI collaborated with NASMHPD’s Housing Task Force to collect from State Mental Health Agencies information about the Roles of SMHAs in providing housing and the types of housing and supports they provide.
