The CBFS Program assists more than 600 adults with serious mental illness who have been referred by the Department of Mental Health and are in need of support for their recovery efforts. The program is based on the principles of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, person-centered planning and the belief that recovery is possible. The persons served may live in their own apartments or in North Suffolk owned properties. Each person served works with a team of Support Specialists who help in the development of an Individualized Action Plan that addresses life goals. The program has specialists in the areas of Employment, Health and Wellness, Housing, Substance Abuse and Peer Support to support people in their own recovery journey. The CBFS specialty teams include Deaf Services and teams working with Chinese, Vietnamese and Cambodian communities. The intensity and frequency of services is flexible to ensure that supports are available to meet person’s served changing needs.
