Intervention team, housing
Made up of full-time and part-time workers, this team assures a 24/7 presence on the floor and on the telephone. Ten workers make up this team, and their role includes promoting a healthy routine, accompanying clients in concrete tasks, as well as ensuring the safety of the centre and its residents, maintaining regular clinical contact with clients, and offering punctual support when needed.
Intervention team, mobile
The role of the seven workers on this team is to meet with clients in the community or on the referral site (ex. hospital, community organization) to perform an evaluation of the crisis situation. After this initial evaluation, services are offered such as 24/7 telephone support, community follow-up, and/or a stay at the centre if pertinent.
Crisis services in the community consist of regular follow-up meetings with clients (either on a weekly basis or more often if required), as well as family meetings and/or meetings involving the long-term treatment network.
Please be advised that requests for services or exchanges with an interventionist are only possible by telephone. No interventions or counselling orientation shall occur through email.
