People with mental disorders have complex disabilities which make them need other people’s assistance in doing their daily living activities. Community resilience is one of the capacities which is needed to make a healthy environment for mental disorder patients. This study aims to describe how community resilience can be a supporting system in the care of people with mental disorders. A literature review was conducted in order to obtain 98 reference sources. Only 15 articles were eligible to be reviewed. The community resilience’s supporting system consists of providing social, physical and economical infrastructures through employment opportunities or financial support and a decent life. Interactions between community members and people with mental disorders become a positive relationship, helping people with mental disorders to carry out their activities and to become independent. It also has an impact on decreasing the symptoms of relapse as well as reducing the level of dependency that cause them to continue to be a burden on their families, communities and global society.
