Recovery Support

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. The process, unique to each person, involves transcending shame and stigma, experiencing an increased sense of self-efficacy, purpose, and direction in life, and increasing connections to family, community, or social support.

Outpatient Civil Commitment

Do you have a loved one who struggles with a mental illness that has led to hospitalization?  Do they need help connecting or staying connected to outpatient mental health services? There is a program that may be able to help them.

The Outpatient Civil Commitment (OCC) program is a pilot program in Baltimore City that assists people who are not well-connected to mental health services get connected and stay connected to care. There is no cost for this program, and it does not matter what type of insurance you have. Many people choose to participate in the program voluntarily, but there is a path for involuntary admission into the program for those who qualify.

The OCC program is a partnership between the Maryland Department of Health, Behavioral Health Administration (BHA), Behavioral Health System Baltimore (BHSB), National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Maryland, the Mental Health Association of Maryland (MHAMD), and Bon Secours.
