Prevention & Recovery Care (PARC)

Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) is a six bed, sub-acute residential program available to people with a lived experience of mental distress for up to 28 days. Individuals can use this service as additional support after a hospital admission prior to returning home, or when additional support is needed in order to avoid a hospital admission.

Eight positions, as part of a ‘Flexible Package of Care’, are available to individuals in addition to the residential program. This can be attended as a ‘Day Program’ where people living at home can attend the PARC program and learn skills to manage their experiences without the need of an admission; and as ‘Outreach Support’ where skills building sessions are delivered to individuals in their home environment.

The PARC program is located onsite with the Community Rehabilitation Facility and offers a recovery based program aimed at helping individuals to regain balance in life. The program includes, introduction to therapy, distress tolerance, hearing voices support, engagement in community programs/services and more.

Referral guidelines: Referrals are available from your case manager with your Community Mental Health Team.
