Community Support Program (Adults)
Mental Health

The community support program provides services and support to adults over 18 with persistent mental illness such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder or other Psychotic Disorders. 

This program provides short-and long-term flexible and individualized support services to those who may be facing challenges in their community. Community support workers and individuals work together to develop goals and plan for an eventual transition out of service.

Services include: assessment, consultation and navigating the systems, education around mental illness and treatment options, skills development, assistance and support with wellness and recovery goals, education/support for families, advocacy for individuals and linking to services/resources. Psycho-Social Rehab is also offered on the South Shore.
