Support Within Housing - Service Enhancement

Type of Service

Support Within Housing - Mental Health

Program Description

The residential support varies according to the needs of the tenant and is as flexible and portable as required. The program is operated out of the Wellington Site, but workers provide service to clients in their home environment. This goal is achieved by a team of mental health professionals, who adhere to the principles and practices of Psychosocial Rehabilitation. The program is voluntary and thus clients remain in the program as per their needs and the program's ability to meet their needs.
