Mental Health &
Street Outreach Program
Mental Health Outreach
The Mental Health Outreach Team provides two services:
Long term case management to individuals living with a diagnosed serious and persistent mental illness
Outreach services to individuals experiencing homelessness.
The team is composed of public health and psychiatric nurses, housing worker, social workers, a youth worker, a harm reduction worker, an addiction counsellor and a United Church Minister. The team meets people where they live: the case managers meet clients in their homes, or in residential care facilities. The outreach workers connect with people on the street, in a shelter or lining up for a meal. Outreach team members work with people experiencing homelessness who may or may not be living with mental illness/addictions. All team members work on building trusting relationships that assist individuals to connect or reconnect with health, social and housing services as needed. Housing Help Centre provides a housing outreach worker on the Mental Health Outreach Team.
