All are encouraged to be active and maintain regular schedules.
Services are available as needed and each participant receives at least one visit weekly.
On-call support for access to crisis intervention and emergency mental health services is available 24 hours daily. Residents pay about one third of their income towards rent.
Options Mobil Residential Support Team (MRST) provides an enhanced level of support for individuals in New York State Office of Mental Health scattered site supportive housing. The support team will consult with the tenant, his/her treatment team and the Health Home to develop an individualized support plan. An Options team member is available 7 days a week to provide in-home support services to help residents progress towards personal recovery. After six months of service, resident progress is formally evaluated to determine the need for continued service or lessened support.
