  • need to have a diagnosis of a Primary psychotic disorder or Mood disorder with a psychotic component
  • CET will meet with them on the Unit prior to discharge and provide a bridge to a longer term mental health clinic
  • CET provides an intensive outreach support that works with individuals on a Community Treatment Order and manages medication
  • access to Psychiatry to manage medication while awaiting connection to Mental Health Clinic
