Resources to help you find a place, plus Philadelphia area Residential Housing, plus long-distance housing

You may wish to contact your loved one’s case manager, therapist, or psychiatrist to assist you.

Looking for a place for your loved one or yourself? Google “Residential facilities mental illness Bucks County Montgomery County”

There are several types of places:

– The mental health program in the County may offer its own type of communal apartment living. Contact your County to find these.

– Small, independently-run residences, such as a room in a boarding home, are also available. Since the residents are relatively high-functioning, there is little or no help from staff.

– Facilities set up specifically for very disabled individuals, such as the Vikas Home in Ambler.

– Residential/treatment facilities such as Project Transition where clients are set up in communal apartments and put on schedules that encourage them to leave the community to do volunteer work.

– NOTE: In general, there are two types of facilities. One facility offers Treatment, as the patient will eventually return home. The other type is a permanent residential facility. Both are listed below.

Also, people w/mental illness are often put in with substance abusers. Check to make sure your facility holds only people with mental illness. These are two types of psychiatric disorders that are best treated separately.
