Sometimes people who experience mental illness and addictions end up in hospitals. To support you to make the right connections when home, the Community Transitions Team can help.
We support people who are being discharged from hospital to connect with the supports they need to stay safely in the community.
We can also assist people to stay out of hospital.
Working with our community partners, we help clients to:
- Transition to the community after being discharged
- Access immediate support to prevent a visit to the emergency department
- Develop a wellness plan
- Find housing
- Get support for mental health and substance use issues
- Access Peer Support
The Community Transitions Team works in partnership with local hospitals, emergency shelters, and other agencies.
We welcome referrals from hospitals, emergency shelters, shelters that support women who have experienced violence, domiciliary hostels, agencies providing crisis beds, and other community agencies.
