Subtopic: Program Requirements
To be eligible for a BHBH Program-funded project, an individual must meet the following general criteria:
The individual is experiencing significant impairment, or there is a reasonable probability, of significant deterioration in an important area of life functioning
The individual has at least one diagnosis, or a suspected diagnosis, from the current edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) for a mental disorder or a substance-related and addictive disorder, with the exception of Tobacco-Related Disorders and Non-Substance-Related Disorders.
BHBH Program participants are not required to have been given a specific diagnosis; however, bridge housing supports should include access to mental health and/or substance use treatment. See Attachment C: Definitions for a complete definition of “serious behavioral health condition.”
