The CTO Coordination Service provides support to every CTO that is issued in Simcoe County. This support includes:
* assessing clients' suitability for a CTO,
* assisting physicians to complete the proper forms and
* advocating for services for those individuals meeting the criteria for a CTO.
A CTO is a physician's order for community based treatment for individuals living with a serious mental illness who have had repeated hospital admissions and require ongoing support when they leave the hospital. A CTO ensures that individuals receive all the supports they require to live in the community including a physician, a case manager, housing, support with medication and assistance with finances and meaningful activities.
This service also provides education and information about Community Treatment Orders, Mental Health Act and related legislation, to any interested individual or group as requested.
