The Recovery Transition Program (RTP) is an innovative program of services delivered by trained patients – called Peer Mentors – that was designed to help patients and their family/caregivers find appropriate support and services within the community following treatment. The program provides one-on-one peer support, workshops for patients/family, and access to Resource and Information Centres that facilitate work and educational development. The RTP was developed via collaboration among patients, families, and staff in order to meet gaps in mental health care. It was created with the belief that those who live with mental illness and/or addictions are often best equipped to give hope and encouragement to others with similar struggles.

“The RTP program is committed to continue helping patients throughout Covid-19. As such, we are conducting all services on an online basis to keep our community safe during the pandemic.”
