Behavioral Health Services
Easterseals Louisiana assists individuals living with chronic mental illness by providing safe and affordable housing and mental health stability with the goal of improving function within a community, social interaction, employment, and gaining independence. Our trained mental healthcare staff understands the needs and challenges faced by individuals living with mental illness. Easterseals' Mental Health Services specifically target children and adults living with severe and persistent mental illness, who appear to be eligible for Medicaid/SSI benefits based on their income, but who have otherwise failed to qualify for those benefits on their own.

The difference? Easterseals campers experience the joys and challenges of camp in a fully-accessible setting. Click here for more information.
