This program aims to support the courts in their efforts to redirect Francophones dealing with the courts and living with a mental health problem towards appropriate health services instead of detention centers. Our services are offered in both a community and a prison environment. The program provides links to a comprehensive system of services and mental health support, especially to emergency or crisis services, such as beds buffers, as well as intensive case management and housing support. Practitioners work in collaboration with key actors in the criminal justice, health and social services. Support to family members and a support network are available.
These services are aimed at improving the mental health status and the progress of each person, reducing recidivism and hospitalization related to mental health problems, reducing the burden on the criminal-justice system and improving access to mental health services.
