Six Nations Health Services Release from Custody program
Six Nations Health Services Release from Custody program has recently been added to the Mental Health Service Information Ontario database. The program, focused on First Nations communities and located in Ohsweken, Ontario, provides short-term intensive case management to individuals with mental illness who are being released from correctional custody. The goals of the program are to help individuals reintegrate into their community and reduce recidivism by ensuring that adequate community supports and treatment options are made available to those in need. Supports include linking clients to longer-term case management services, rehabilitative programs and medical treatment, safe beds, court support services, appropriate housing and financial assistance, and providing support and information to family members and/or significant others.
