Recovery for people with serious and persistent mental health challenges and/or concurrent addiction concerns
People residing in the local community who are struggling with complex mental health and/or concurrent addiction issues may need support coordination for successful recovery. The Support Coordination 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 support coordinators, a concurrent addiction specialist, and a peer specialist and collaborates with the person, family and health and service networks to create their recovery plan and stay living in their chosen community.
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 and/or concurrent addiction issues, and risk issues across their life situations. They must:
- Reside in Guelph and Wellington County; and
- Be 18 years and older

This group is for individuals who are receiving mental health support through Case Coordination or the Assertive Community Treatment Team and who wish to build on their social skills and participate in leisure activities to improve physical health and community memberships. The Social Connections group meets twice monthly to plan and organize activities. Some activities may involve a nominal fee. For more information, please call 866-932-0037, extension 32357.
