Adult Forensic Outreach Program
The Adult Forensic Outreach Program provides services to those adults of the Comox Valley and Campbell River who have been directly referred by Forensic Psychiatric Services. The outreach worker provides support to individuals referred with a goal to decrease risk factors and enhance stabilization in the community. Where needed and appropriate, assist with activities of daily living and encourage independence in areas such as cooking, financial management, hygiene, shopping, making and keeping appointments.
