Case Management/Supportive Counselling & Services - Mental Health
Case Managers work with individuals who have mental health or addiction issues and are living independently in the community. Clients are assigned a Case Manager with whom they can meet regularly. Services are designed to assist clients in their home, work, school and social environments. Case Managers provide goal-oriented and individualized supports focusing on improved self-sufficiency, through assessment, planning, referrals, advocacy and the development of skills and resources that meet the individual’s needs. Meetings are confidential and can take place in the home, in a community setting (e.g. coffee shop), or at our offices. Case management can assist with:
Development of problem solving and coping skills.
Development of skills for budgeting and personal care as well as time, anger and stress management.
Learning about mental illness or addiction and symptom management.
Connecting to other community supports and services.
Interactions with landlords, Public Trustees, ODSP or other services.
A consulting psychiatrist is available for consultation around medication and treatment options.
