The Natalia Mental Health Foundation (formerly the Myrtlewood Foundation) has had discussions with two entities that offer residential treatment programs for the mentally ill which combine living accommodations, therapies and work programs. These are Merry Meadow Farm in Bradford, VT and Hanover, NH (www.merrymeadowfarm.com) and WestBridge Community Services in Manchester, NH and Brooksville, FL (www.westbridge.org).
The Foundation aims to provide support grants at these living facilities to enable attendance by selected individuals that cannot afford them financially but that otherwise qualify in terms of the admission standards of these entities.
As the Foundation expands, other living centers will be added to this program.
Clients of both Merry Meadow Farm and WestBridge Community Services are participants in the research program being conducted under The Dartmouth Project (see "The Dartmouth Project" under "Supported Research Projects").
