Mental Health Services


Mental Health
SOME supports homeless women and men in stabilizing and maintaining their mental health through several inpatient and outpatient programs.

We provide walk-in psychiatric services and counseling to individuals suffering from mental illness at our Health Services Clinic. Around the corner from the Clinic is SOME’s Isaiah House, a therapeutic day program that provides a supportive environment for men and women who have been impacted by both homelessness and severe and persistent mental illness.

Isaiah House offers drop-in services such as showers, meals, laundry facilities and phone access, as well as social activities and staff support. The core of the program is peer support and positive involvement, and many participants, known as members, attend Isaiah House on a daily basis.

SOME also operates Jordan House, which is a community alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. Caring staff are on-site 24 hours per day, and cultivate a safe, stable, homelike environment. Counselors complete a comprehensive assessment of each incoming client and follow-up with intensive counseling to rapidly stabilize psychiatric symptoms.
