FOCUS Community Mental Health Team

Type of Service

Assertive Community Treatment Teams

Program Description

The FOCUS Community Mental Health Team (Formerly CONTACT Mental Health Service) is a new innovative partnership program between St. Michael's Mental Health Service and COTA. FOCUS relies on an interdisciplinary team to provide a continuum of integrated intensive case management (ICM) and Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) services to meet both the immediate and future intensity of services required by the client.

Services are organized to allow for flexibility of movement between levels of service - ICM and ACT - while maintaining continuity of care. Services provided by the team are individualized for each client. Clients may require support with medications, symptom monitoring and management, physical health needs, substance use issues, finances, housing or shelter, access to basic needs such as food and clothing, activities of daily living, educational issues, work or meaningful activity, legal issues, social activities, family issues, and support networks. On-call support is available 24 hours per day.
