Community Treatment Orders - Mississauga
Community Treatment Orders (CTO) provide a legal mechanism for people with serious mental illness to receive treatment, support and supervision in the community. In partnership with the client and service providers, a comprehensive plan is developed that is less restrictive than being hospitalized. This program is for people who experience recurrent hospitalizations, benefit from treatment and usually do not engage in out patient follow-up. Only physicians can initiate a community treatment order, which is limited to six months in duration.
The CTO coordinator provides assistance with drafting the plan, ensuring Rights Advice and securing community services for the client. The CTO case manager is available for support, monitoring and developing linkages to community supports and agencies.
