Additional Information: This program is a medicaid reimbursable program replacing psychosocial contracts with NYS. HALI sees this mandate as an opportunity to create a life-giving recovery program and set a higher standard of services for individuals with severe and persistant mental illness. All services will be provided by consumers, some of whom have received treatment in day treatment centers. We believe that the program design offered at HALI by peers will bring hope and recovery to participants, their families, and supporters.
