Case Management aims to connect a client and his/her family with a Case Manager who strives to understand the individual’s specific needs, reinforce collaborations with community resources, and ultimately, help our client and his/her family to walk through the recovery journey with specific goal setting strategies that focus on reflecting, planning, implementing, achieving, revising, and reflecting again.
Our Case Manager conducts assessments, develops care and safety plan with achievable goals, and provides supportive counselling to individuals and/or their families.
Our Case Management service is free for everyone, although we encourage those who have alternatives to review other options if available in order to reduce the waiting time for everyone. Our services are for those who:
We accept referrals from individuals, families, friends, health and social service providers.
We help individuals and their families to access affordable and stable housing, a safe living environment, to achieve their personal recovery goals. Our service, based on the “head lease” model, enables clients to live in the community on their own or with their family. We lease the apartment / house units at a subsidized rate to our clients and their families, and provide them with case management services to support their recovery goals. Our Case Managers will help our clients navigate the health care system and link them with the social support networks that will benefit their recovery.
We provide education for our housing clients on solution focused problem solving, risk management, coping with emotions, managing mental health issues, linking to community resources, developing positive relationships and life skill training as well as additional resources and supports to those who are on their mental health recovery journey.
Our services are for those who:
