Meet Annabel, a former inpatient at VGH. Homeless upon admission, Annabel is now living in the community and making plans to achieve her life goals. Thanks to VCH Vancouver’s Community Transition Team, Annabel is no longer homeless and hopeful about her future.
The Community Transition Team works with acute psychiatry patients who are homeless. The team assesses client housing and support needs, and ensures a smooth transition upon discharge. Appropriate health supports are provided for a six-to-eight-month follow-up program and the team helps clients secure permanent housing.
