The Transitional Stability Centre (TSC) is an integrated interagency model of care. The TSC provides support for individuals identified as frequent users of Emergency Services, including Emergency Department, ambulance and police services, homeless or at risk of being homeless, having minor infractions with the law, and those experiencing a mental health or substance abuse event who don’t need admission to a hospital, but need stabilization and care coordination.
An inter-professional team onsite at TSC provides one-on-one (1:1) sessions with clients as well as supportive group programs. TSC collaborates with community organizations to provide clients with support/care services while ensuring tight client connections upon discharge. Client involvement can be up to five (5) weeks. Timelines are flexible based on client’s needs.
