About

Who We Are

Step by Step Supportive Services empowers adults 20 and older who are dealing with the complications of life with a mental illness to find their own path to independence. Our unique model offers a broad range of services that are customized for each person, whether receiving residential services in their own apartment in the historic building where SBS is housed or in a nearby dorm, apartment or family setting as part of our community based services. We are located in the heart of Brookline, with public transportation right outside the door, to enable our clients to take full advantage of all that Boston has to offer- first rate schools, medical care, job opportunities and cultural activities of every kind. Our passionate, caring staff are Master's level clinicians who incorporate evidence based practices into their clinical case management meetings and value the importance of family involvement in the recovery process. We recognize the importance of being connected to a community and go to great lengths to foster a safe, supportive environment for each person. Unique programming offerings include our dinner program, social activities, therapeutic groups, vocational services and wellness program.

Clinical Case Management

Each client has the opportunity to meet for hourly one-on-one sessions several times a week with their clinician. Sessions are uniquely tailored around the needs of our clients and can be facilitated in any environment. With appropriate consent, case managers provide a single point of contact for all treatment providers and family members to streamline communication and continuity of care. We strive to help each client overcome their specific obstacles by creating an individualized support plan based on their needs and goals. Goals are often focused around re-entry into the community, independent living, academic support, executive functioning, time management, vocational support and developing their social network. At times our clients only require a weekly session, while others need intensive case management to ensure success in the home, school and community. This may include support in completing tasks such as grocery shopping, apartment upkeep, organization and financial/budgeting issues. Case Management Services may include the following: Therapeutic Coaching, Academic Support, Life Skills Coaching, Symptom Management, Executive Functioning Coaching.

College Support and Social Activities

At Step by Step we understand the unique challenges that arise when life becomes complicated by a behavioral health issue or other life stressors. We are conveniently located near over 40 colleges and universities. We work with our clients to reach their educational gosls, while simultaneously managing the complexities of their specific illness. Our expertise lies in helping our clients to cultivate their skills to do well both inside and outside of the classroom. Many of our clients are struggling with various learning and social issues and need support around time management, organization and follow through with planned activities and assignments. Our case managers are available throughout the week for check-ins via text messages or phone support, whether they are in their apartment, school or community setting. As many of our clients experience a high degree of anxiety in social settings, we assist them to connect with important activities and people. We start with our dinner program, where clients and staff cook together and then host for 2-3 others, sharing food and conversation. We reinforce social skills in our therapeutic groups. There are various social activities each weekend, as well as Friday night pizza and movies.
