Community or Constituency Served We serve individuals 16 years and older who live with serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and bipolar disorder. Many of our clients also face barriers to reaching their optimal health, including medical conditions, chronic homelessness, isolation, unemployment, poverty, and substance use disorder. In fact, half of our clients have a co-occurring disorder, which means they cope with a medical condition or substance use disorder in addition to mental illness. Mental illness is common—1 in 5 adults live with it. At Guild, we believe this is nothing to be ashamed of. We also believe it shouldn’t be a barrier to finding safety, security, and community. Which is why our services help individuals find quality mental health services, stable housing, and competitive employment in the community of their choosing. We work with people with serious mental illness at all stages of their journey, whether they are currently experiencing a crisis, or have achieved stability and are using Guild services to maintain their health. The experience of mental illness is not linear and varies for every person. That’s why our services are comprehensive and interconnected—or as one of our clients said, “the glue between the cracks, preventing me from falling.”
