A few weeks ago, Mad in America published an article about this program:

 

Original Soteria House Members to Speak!

 

Quote

 

Soteria House was a groundbreaking model that began in 1971 in San Jose, CA, in Santa Clara County. It was named after the Greek goddess or spirit of safety, salvation, deliverance, and preservation from harm. The home was for young adults who met the DSM criteria for “schizophrenia.”

The idea of Soteria house was that of “being with” people as they went through extreme states. . . ..

Thank you Shep. 

 

I'm about 1/2 through Voyce Hendrix(cousin of Jimmy Jimi, no less).  My gosh, it's historical and so great. 

So glad Soteria got written up in journals, and is there forever now!

 

And how peculiarly timely for me. 

 

Timely for us all, I expect.

Check out my first post again, MMT - your post reminded me of two more resources - the Soteria book and Will Hall's podcast with Voyce Hendrix. I just added those resources to that first post.

 

Yep, Voyce Hendrix, cousin of Jimmy, no less! B)
