The housing program is a 12-bed congregate treatment program (supervised community residence) that is designed for monolingual and bilingual Spanish inpatients at Bronx Psychiatric Center who are discharge ready. The program is designed for individuals that are diagnosed with a severe and persistent mental illness. It provides residential services that support and assist residents with their goal of reintegration into the community. The program has a rehabilitative focus and is responsible for referring residents to services that are consistent with their desire, needs, tolerance and capability to participate in such services. The rehabilitative focus of the congregate treatment program provides for improved resident independence: choices and outcomes. Sponsored by NYS Office of Mental Health.
