Adults, aged 18 and above are welcome to live at our homes. Our residents experience a variety of mental health challenges, including (but not limited to) schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder, thought disorders and mood disorders, including bipolar disorder, major depressive or anxiety disorder and personality disorders, including borderline and avoidant personality disorders. We suggest alternative programs for individuals currently at imminent risk of self-harm or harm to others, individuals struggling currently from an eating disorder requiring constant monitoring or individuals currently abusing drugs or alcohol should seek a higher level of care.
Once invited to join a Grace & Mind house, how soon can a resident move in?
Usually the applicant can move in immediately upon the completion of the exploratory visit.
Will I have my own room?
Yes. At Grace & Mind, all residents have private bedrooms and with shared bathrooms, not to exceed 2 residents per bathroom. Each room is fully furnished and comes with fun extra’s like your own television and the opportunity to make the room your own upon move in.
Are smoking and vaping allowed?
Smoking is allowed in designated areas, outside of the residence.
My family member has substance abuse issues combined with his/her mental illness. Can you help?
Grace & Mind supports individuals with a primary psychiatric diagnosis. We ask those struggling with an addiction to have at least 60 days of sobriety before joining our community. As with all of our guidelines, this is individualized, and we encourage you to speak with an admissions staff member to discuss specifics.
How long is the average stay?
The length of a resident’s stay is highly individualized and depends on their specific needs and challenges. There is no maximum stay and our homes can be for life.
What is the role of the family member?
We strongly advocate for family participation in the individual’s recovery process. Once necessary releases (allowing us to share confidential information) are authorized by the resident or guardian, our staff will contact families by email or phone to give regular updates on progress being made.
Are family and friends allowed to visit?
Yes, we encourage friends and family to visit but ask that the confidentially of other residents be respected.
Do the houses have curfews?
We encourage the resident to live as safely and independently as they can and with that our staff is trained to foster an environment of trust and reliance with all residents. There is no mandatory time a resident must be home, however if a client is not home by a reasonable time, staff would reach out to the client and notice their absence and reach out to the client.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance and for this reason we are able to keep our prices low by operating on a private-pay basis. Future homes may take insurance depending on the level of support staff required.
