The In-STED program aims to identify complex mental health and addictions needs early, and intervene through timely, high-quality, integrated and culturally appropriate short-term case management services.
What is the In-STED Program?
The In-STED program (In Short-Term Emergency Diversion) aims to identify complex mental health and addictions needs early, and intervene through timely, high-quality, integrated and culturally appropriate short-term case management services.
This innovative partnership between Canadian Mental Health Association/Peel Branch (CMHA Peel), SHIP (Supports and Housing in the Province) and Punjabi Community Health Services (PCHS) is the first of its kind in Peel, optimizing the integration of community mental health and addiction services.
Who can benefit?
Focussing on the most vulnerable, repeat emergency department users the In-STED team addresses individuals’ most critical needs and links them to services. The hope is that In-STED will reduce repeat visits to hospital emergency departments, effectively support recovery and provide stability for individuals while they await long term services.
What are the major benefits?
- Offer more effective community-based service
- Redirect support from emergency departments back to the community
- Streamlined transitions with ‘warm’ transfers
- Supportive short-term counseling
- Individualized assessment and treatment planning
