Trauma and Embodiment Association of Ontario
TEAO will work in collaboration within the community to provide mental health services to those that are experiencing a crisis or have survived trauma(s) (providing a mental health assessment, appropriate referrals, psycho-education, connections to services, and other disposition recommendations). This may be effective in diverting individuals away from the hospital or mismatched services as it will provide crisis services within the community during the crisis event as an accessible resource to individuals. We will focus on early intervention and support more complex situations to protect youth and adults from the many associated costs of mental illness, addictions and systemic oppression as well. With strong leadership and accountability, we can give front-line service providers, health care practitioners and first responders the tools they need to identify those at risk, and intervene early.
