Support for Children of Mentally Ill Parent

My kids' father has a mental illness and he can't provide for them. Can they receive any kind of help like SSI or something?

Isn't the father on some kind of disability? If he is the kids should be getting part of that. Finding out if he is on disability is your first step, and then go to the office of child support enforcement and talk them. Then go the Social Security Office and ask about SSI. Also you could go to you local department of social services and apply for Tanf. That stands for Temporary Assistance For Needy Families.
