TA Coalition Webinar: Increasing Access to Quality Care through Supportive Housing


A SAMHSA sponsored webinar developed under contract by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) and presented by Mental Health America (MHA) took place Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 1:30pm Eastern Time called Increasing Access to Quality Care Through Supportive Housing.


Description: Housing programs offer supports to help people stay connected to the best mental health care they need to promote recovery. Since 1990, MHA of South Carolina and its affiliates have grown more than 600 housing units for communities across their state. Their housing models include residential care for individuals with serious mental health challenges and shelter plus care models. To meet the need, MHASC created Turnkey Housing Corp., an arm of the organization that develops housing, especially in rural areas. The webinar will explore:

•How MHASC’s housing staff works with the local community to design housing that best fits the needs of consumers, 

•How they use federal, state and private funding sources to develop projects, and 

•Best practices in running housing models that increase access to quality care. 



•Joy Jay: Executive Director of Mental Health America South Carolina 

•Darlene Riggins: Housing Director of Mental Health America South Carolina
