We understand the relationship between risk and issues that might affect your health. Our case managers work with you to recognize and address your needs accordingly to your expectations:
- Through an intensive case management approach we work with you to decrease vulnerability and risks to contracting HIV by focusing on your strengths and self resiliency.
- We support the development of self-efficacy and personal skills that can increase your resiliency – for example, if you want to make changes in your behavior, lifestyle, relationships, emotional and mental health… we will work together to support you in any way we can.
- We address structural and institutional barriers that can impact your health – if you need assistance with getting on income assistance, finding housing, learning about and getting referred to community support services, with immigration issues, legal issues... we’re here for you.
The Health Promotion Case Management (HPCM) program uses acomprehensive approach to health which positions HIV prevention within a broad and inclusive health framework.
The program promotes health that goes beyond HIV, STIs, and sexual behavior to incorporate physical, social, cultural and mental aspects. Our case managers are focused on providing a broad spectrum of care with diverse communities. We are a team of 7 case managers working with 8 different communities:
- Gay and bisexual men
- Other men who have sex with men
- Vulnerable women
- Immigrants and Refugees
- Trans community
- Men in sero-discordant relationships
Episode of Care
Our responsibility is to stabilize emergent situations that can present barriers to your health and well being. We will identify the most appropriate supports within our program and the community.
Over a period of 1 to 5 months you will work together with a case manager to identify your needs and set achievable goals. Although our aim is for 1 to 5 months of care, you dictate the level and duration of support you need.
Once you’ve identified that you’ve reached a level of stability, case managers will work with you to plan for your transition by connecting you to appropriate community resources and supports.
Our case managers will follow up with you 3-6 months post transition.
