Community Mental Health Support Services
Community Mental Health Support Services (CMHSS) strives to support individuals and their families who are living with mental illness.
Our mission is to assist individuals to achieve their goals, to feel as well as possible, and to live in a community setting of their choice. Our dedicated team offers highly individualized support through person-centred planning and through direct assistance.
Funding for most CMHSS iniatives has been provided by the North west Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), and by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. CMHSS offers four programs: Intensive Case Management offers support for individuals with a mental illness; Dual Diagnosis Services offers support for individuals with an intellectual disability and a mental illness; Housing Subsidy Program facilitates subsidies for individuals who are assisted through Ontario Works or who are assisted through Ontario Disability Support Program; and the Wellness Project, which provides opportunities for individuals to participate in community activities.
