MMW (Mashkikiiwininiwag Mazinaatesijigan Wichiiwewin) /Transitions Program
The MMW/Transitions Program works with adults 18 years of age and older and their families living with developmental disabilities who may have mental health issues, challenging behaviours, who may require assessment for eligibility to services, are difficult to diagnose and/or need help with their medication. By providing services where and when people need them, the program enables adults with developmental disabilities to continue to live in their homes in the community.
This program has two components:
- Clinical Assessment Program (MMW)
- Transitions Youth Facilitator Program
The MMW program provides specialized clinical services and resources for adults living with developmental disabilities. It also provides a unique opportunity for individuals, families, caregivers and professionals to share resources and information over significant geographic distances. Videoconferencing technology allows participants to meet via high speed, secure telecommunication links, in real time, face to face.
In partnership Surrey Place and in collaboration with other partners, we are able to provide this service to communities situated in Northwestern Ontario. Local agencies, professionals and communities have access to specialized (therapeutic) services and educational opportunities, that may otherwise not be available due to cost and other factors associated with the distances to major centers.
Services may include:
- Intake – Service Coordination
- Psychological Assessment and Consultation
- Behavior Therapy Assessment and Consultation
