Weyburn Welcomes New Community Recovery Team

Released on February 11, 2019

A new Community Recovery Team in Weyburn is providing more intensive supports for people living with complex, persistent mental health challenges.  The province has dedicated $4.2 million in targeted funding to support the launch of Community Recovery Teams in Weyburn and seven other Saskatchewan communities.

“Community Recovery Teams do incredible work helping people stay safe, healthy and in the community,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “Team members are on the front lines to help people better manage symptoms and achieve their individual goals.  Through their work, we will create a better, more efficient and more caring health system for people with mental health issues.”

Community Recovery Teams (CRTs) use a holistic and team-based approach to help clients manage symptoms, achieve their goals, avoid hospitalization, and thrive in the community.  The Weyburn CRT includes a team lead, six Community Health Nurses, two Mental Health Therapists, an Addiction Counsellor, and an Occupational Therapist.

“The Community Recovery team in Weyburn will allow us to be flexible and responsive to our clients and provide the specific services they need, when and where they need them,” Director of Mental Health and Addictions (South East) for the Saskatchewan Health Authority Robert Stephenson said.  “It’s all about providing patient-centered care and this new model really allows us to do that.”

CRTs support Saskatchewan’s Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan and are also being launched in Regina, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Swift Current, Moose Jaw, Yorkton, and Saskatoon.

Funding comes from the Canada-Saskatchewan Bilateral Funding Agreement.  Announced in January 2017, the federal government is providing Saskatchewan with close to $350 million over 10 years for targeted incremental investments in home and community care and mental health and addiction services.
