Recovery for people with serious mental illness
People residing in the local community who are struggling with complex mental health and co-occurring addictions issues may need long-term support co-ordination for successful recovery. The Case Co-ordination Program provides intensive case management with treatment and community support strategies to address the challenges of self-care, productivity, and leisure. Our multidisciplinary team includes rehabilitation support coordinators, an addiction specialist, and a peer specialist and collaborates with the consumer, family and health and service networks to create their recovery plan and stay living in their chosen community.
Intensive, Long-Term Support
Our focus is on long-term and intensive supports in the community which may include medication support, life skills teaching, housing assistance, and access to financial, vocational, and school supports and participation in community roles. We work continuously with the person during crisis, hospitalization, and after discharge.
The people we support have serious and persistent mental illness, may have co-occurring issues such as addiction, and risk issues across their life situations. They must:
- reside in Guelph and Wellington County; and
- be 18 years and older.
