Intensive Support Coordination
Oct 2, 2017
What is Intensive Support Coordination?
This service supports individuals that live in the community who are dealing with significant mental health issues. We promote independence and quality of life through the coordination of appropriate services and consistent and ongoing support.
We are dedicated to supporting resilience and recovery, based on our core values of hope, self-determination and wellness. We also aim to develop a caring, supportive relationship between the Support Coordinator and the person we serve.
Who does this program serve?
This recovery-oriented service is designed to address the needs of people who experience significant struggles with their mental health.
Specifically, it is available to individuals who are:
- 18 years of age or older; and
- Experiencing mental health issues (with or without addiction challenges) that limit their ability to function on a daily basis
