Description

Please join us to enhance your managerial toolkit regarding housing concerns for people experiencing mental health and substance use issues and maintaining their housing.

Come learn and share your experiences in helping people experiencing mental health and substance use in maintaining their housing. What are the housing issues people with mental health and substance use face in maintaining their housing? How can housing professional better assist the people with mental health and substance use issues that they serve? How can housing professional advocate for people experiencing mental health and substance use issues to maintain their housing? You are invited to participate in this managers’ forum which is about enhancing support for your front line housing professional staff as they navigate stigmas, barriers and lack of resources for housing clients living with mental health and who use drugs.

As a manager and leader in your agency, learn and share your best practices in supporting your professional housing staff in finding and keeping housing for people experiencing mental health and substance use issues in Toronto. Together, with the help of CAMH facilitators, we will uncover what requirements housing agencies have – and barriers to these - for integrating mental health and substance use harm reduction practices into their services. Next, we will work on some solutions to these barriers together and plan how to support staff who are navigating the barriers to maintain the housing for people experiencing mental health and substance use issues.

East York East Toronto Family Resources (EYET) is a multi-service agency and registered charity serving communities and families in East York and East Toronto. This forum is organized by EYET’s Housing Services Department and is aimed at building capacity and knowledge for housing services managers and supervisors. This is also a great opportunity to network with other leaders in housing.
