Housing Services

Housing resources are typically expensive and limited for this special population. But without specialized care, the mentally ill face the stress of being unable to perform daily tasks or the inability to find necessary support.

Warren Yazoo Behavioral Health operates two group homes designed to provide community-based care for the seriously mentally ill, including those discharged from the Mississippi State Hospital. Together, the two homes can accommodate a total of 27 residents. Through the group homes, residents receive affordable 24-hour residential care and supervision in a home-like setting rather than in an institutional facility and reduces the individuals chances of requiring re-hospitalization. Residents share household responsibilities including cooking, cleaning, and menu planning. Each resident's progress is followed through psychosocial rehabilitation programs and individual therapy.
