More than 74.1 million Americans live in homeowners associations, condominium communities, cooperatives, and other planned communities. One in five people in the U.S. live with a mental health condition of some kind. One in 25 people live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression. Over 50% of people will be diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in our lives.
It follows that a percentage of the residents living in communities are currently suffering with either a mental illness or mental health issue. Community association board members, managers, and business partners aren’t immune either.
How could residents with mental illnesses impact community associations? If board members and managers need to take action, is there a way to be compassionate and empathetic while being responsible association leaders?
It can be hard to balance the human side of the equation—recognizing that someone needs help and offering assistance—and the obligations to the broader community.
Examine the issues and explore possible solutions with CAI's Minding Mental Illness—a guide adapted from the Best Manuscript Award-winning presentation at the 2022 Community Association Law Seminar. A recording of the session is available for purchase in CAI's Learning Center. A version of this guide was previously published in the September/October 2022 Common Ground TM magazine.
