Introduction. In order to implement the state policy on the targeted provision of social assistance and improve the quality of social services to people with disabilities in the subjects of the Russian Federation, work is being carried out to involve socially-oriented non-profit organizations (NPOs) in the provision of services and supporting activities in the organization of the rehabilitation of disabled people, including those with mental disorders.
The relevance of the study is determined by the need to study the participation of NPOs in the provision of assisted living services to disabled people with mental disorders due to the significant number of those citizens who, according to the conclusion of the medical and social experts, could self-serve, integrate into society and lead an independent lifestyle, but need socialization and assistance.

Aim. Evaluation of the contribution of non-profit organizations to the development of the system of assisted living services for disabled persons with mental disorders.

Materials and methods. The research materials were data collected by our methodology for monitoring the activities of social-oriented non-profit organizations providing assisted living for people with disabilities due to mental disorders, submitted by the executive authorities of 74 subjects of the Russian Federation as of 01.01.2022.

Results. According to the monitoring results, it was revealed that in 25 (33,8 %) subjects of the Russian Federation, 41 non-profit organizations participate in the implementation of assisted living for people with disabilities due to mental disorders and behavioral disorders, which is 11,0 % of the total structure of organizations providing assisted living services to people with disabilities. About half of them, 46.3 %, provide services to people with disabilities on a permanent basis, while the vast majority of government organizations (78,0 %) provide services to people with disabilities within the framework of educational assisted living.

Discussion. For the first time, an assessment of the activities of non-profit organizations and their contribution to the development of the system of providing services to persons with disabilities with mental disorders in the framework of accompanied living was carried out. Despite the fact that the share of NPOs is 11.0 % in the total structure of organizations providing assisted living services to people with disabilities, about half of them provide services to people with disabilities on a permanent basis, which ultimately contributes to improving the level and quality of their lives.

Conclusion. The involvement of non-profit organizations in the system of implementation of assisted living for people with mental disorders has been revealed. For people with disabilities with this pathology, the number of NPOs involved in the provision of services is 13.9 %. Priority in financing services within the framework of accompanied accommodation belongs to the government.
