In addition, Region 6 provides case management services for severely emotionally disturbed children and their families through the Professional Partner Program and a Rental Assistance Program for eligible persons who are recovering from a severe and persistent mental illness.
The Region 6 Prevention Program also provides funding and technical assistance to local community coalitions that work toward the prevention and/or reduction of tobacco, alcohol and other drug use in our communities.
