Flexible Support Program (16+)

Flexible Support Program (16+)

This Flexible Support program assists individuals that need support to find or maintain safe and affordable housing.  The program offers different types of flexible supports to match your current mental health and housing needs.

The Flexible Support program is offered in partnership with York Support Services Network (YSSN). Referrals can be made through Streamlined Access to be connected to a York Support Services Network Case Manager.  Once connected with a Case Manager, individuals can be referred to CMHA’s Flexible Support services for additional support. Services can include social work, occupational therapy, nursing, peer support, and/or psychiatry services for up to six months.  

If you are already connected with a York Support Services Network Flexible Supports Case Manager, please contact your Case Manager directly for a referral to one of these additional services. 

Case management services are offered through York Support Network in partnership with more intensive support through CMHA’s Flexible Support Team when needed.
