Supports Within Housing

The Mental Health and Justice Initiative is a partnership of agencies that support and house individuals who have mental health challenges, are currently involved in the criminal justice system and are homeless or potentially homeless. Toronto North Support Services provides case management to clients once they’ve been housed, helping them recover from mental illness, retain their tenancy and learn new life skills.
