Road to Success

The following program(s) may be helpful to individuals with mental health disabilities and/or developmental disabilities in the New Orleans, LA area: The terms "mental health disability" and "developmental disability" are used to describe a wide range of disorders that can affect the cognitive process, behavior, mood and coping skills of an individual. To date, more than 200 mental health disorders have been identified. Due to the wide spectrum of symptoms and effects, these disorders can be both difficult to diagnose and treat. Often times this leads individuals down a long road to recovery and process. To make that road shorter, the Metropolitan Human Services District (MHSD) strives to provide opportunities for individuals and their families to receive the support and services that will enable them to live as full members within their communities. Through MHSD, eligible Orleans, St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parish residents can receive assistance through the Mental Health services program as well as the Developmental Disabilities Services (DDS) program. These programs include:

Day Treatment Programs Pharmacy Assistance Programs Case Management Child/Adolescent Programs Adult Programs Cash Subsidy Programs Support Services Personal Care Assistance Respite Services Crisis Assistance Psychological Services
In addition to Mental Health services and DDS, MHSD also provides Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH). Through PSH, housing is provided for individuals with disabilities who have low incomes and are in danger of becoming homeless or institutionalized. In order to receive housing through the program, individuals must meet the various eligibility requirements including household income. If you believe that you or a family member may qualify for any of the services listed above and are in need of assistance, call the Metropolitan Human Services District at (504) 599-0245 for more information. We are available day or night to help you receive the Social Security benefits that you deserve. If you or a loved one has a disability and are in need of assistance in applying for Social Security disability benefits, contact The Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers at 1-800-THE-FIRM.
