The Transitional Living Program (TLP) at Amita Health Alexian Brothers Center for Mental Health (ABCMH) is a treatment program that assists individuals with a diagnosed mental illness to integrate or reintegrate into the community, with the ultimate goal of successfully living independently in the community in a situation that can be sustained over time. This is not a housing program and we do not provide housing solutions to individuals simply requiring housing. The focus of the TLP treatment program includes specific skill areas including things like cooking, cleaning, shopping and budgeting. The program also includes coping skills – learning how to independently cope with symptoms of mental illness and social skills. Individuals who participate in the program reside in a TLP apartment. Please be aware that there is usually an extensive waiting list for individuals without both Medicaid and a source of income. Please see amitahealth.org for more information.
