Mental Wellness Outreach

Our mental wellness outreach work involves collaboration with various community service providers to support continuity of care to community members with both mental health and addiction issues. The collaboration of care includes MKO’s crisis response team and community resource teams.

Our team includes a Mental Wellness Outreach Worker whose role is to coordinate treatment and continuity of care plans for First Nation clients. We assist individuals with advocacy, services and support, while engaging them to participate.
