Offering adults, youth and their families the community-based supports and services they need to rebuild lives affected by persistent mental illness
About UPSTREAM OTTAWA
Upstream provides a choice of ongoing flexible support services, via generic mental health case management and family focused case management models. In addition, limited permanent affordable housing options are available to individuals afflicted with serious and persistent mental illness in order to assist with optimum functioning in the community. Upstream provides ongoing recreational group activities to its consumers which are designed to decrease stigmatization and increase social networking opportunities. Emphasis is placed on reducing isolation, increasing educational/vocational opportunities, activities of daily living.
Currently, a second Youth Mental Health Case Management Program is being internally funded based on feedback & stated needs of the community and our success in serving this population.
The majority of our fundraising efforts are geared towards ensuring the fiscal viability of this Mental Health Youth Program.
