CTO Coordinators provide assistance to physicians and
inpatient hospital teams to coordinate the process and development of community
treatment orders (CTOs). The Coordinators are located in mental health units at
hospitals and provide consultation and support to assist in the various aspects
involved in the development of a CTO. Coordinators work with all parties
involved in a CTO to ensure proper process is followed, including completing
appropriate forms and documentation, accessing right’s advice, and facilitating
the development of a comprehensive community treatment plan that addresses an
individual’s treatment and support needs when they are discharged from an
inpatient hospital setting. This may include making referrals for ongoing
support services as part of the community treatment plan. Individuals eligible
for this service would need to meet criteria for a CTO as detailed in the
Mental Health Act.
