Promoting Housing Stability

Stable housing gives people who live with mental illness, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders a foundation to succeed in recovery. There are many issues that might challenge someone's housing stability, such as

  • Symptoms
  • Interpersonal conflicts
  • Hoarding
  • Not following rules
  • Unemployment and underemployment
  • Benefits concerns and other financial issues
  • Trauma triggers

The way service providers respond to and interact with residents can positively influence their future success. Learn to build self-awareness about your attitudes, thoughts, and communication style as you conduct your work. Learn to keep your attention centered on residents. Learn how to explore and encourage motivation to change.
