Transitional Discharge Model: A Bridge from Hospital to Community
The purpose of this project is to implement the Transitional Discharge Model (TDM) at nine CAHO hospitals across Ontario.
Krasman Centre was pleased to partner with Baycrest Centre in order to make TDM available to Baycrest clients. Baycrest continues to provide weekly therapeutic peer support meetings to its clients based on the format that the Krasman Centre implemented.
TDM supports the successful transition from hospital to the community for people diagnosed with a mental health challenge. Hospital wards and peer support volunteers work closely with each other to ensure a seamless safety net exists for clients throughout the discharge and community reintegration processes. Some basic assumptions of the TDM are: • Positive relationships can be healing • Transitions in care are vulnerable periods for individuals with mental health challenges; and • A support network during transitional periods assists in recovery. TDM is a “best practice,” which means that studies have consistently shown it to be one of the most effective approaches to recovery.
