Patient Outcomes

  • With the Transitional Discharge Model, discharged patients have a safety net of supportive relationships;

  • Thanks to a partnership between the Forensic Mental Health Program and the Canadian Mental Health Association Thunder Bay, the development of a transitional rehabilitative housing program is helping patients find sustainable housing;
