Keep Your Housing Handbook

A Guide to Help Massachusetts Tenants with Mental Health

Issues Maintain Their Housing

Northeastern University School of Law students and the Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee created this guide to help tenants understand their housing rights and responsibilities.

This guide provides some simple steps that tenants can take to keep their housing, offers information about reasonable accommodations, addresses additional rights and responsibilities of tenants who live in certain federally funded housing programs, and presents a brief overview of the eviction process.

This guide is designed to be a resource for tenants and people who work with individuals with mental health issues, such as family members, case managers, and advocates. Please note that citations to laws and other sources are available in the Endnotes, listed below as a separate chapter.
