The Talisman Foundation offers an outpatient service for residents who have completed
the program and moved out to live independently or in a less structured environment.
These services are meant to enable residents to maintain a continuum of care and
keep the same doctor, facilitator and medication regiment which they had on discharge,
and a familiar face who knows them well enough to assist quickly when there is a
problem. The advantages of our outpatient program are that the resident is able to
adjust the level of input which he requires to suit his level of independence.
A person who does not require any supervision to maintain his level of wellness may
not even need to have his facilitator visits unless he requires it. This allows the
client to take responsibility for their lives, wellness and uninterrupted work status
without rehabilitation becoming an impediment to the way you live your life.
We also offer an employee assistance program to ones employer as a safeguard if there
are any problems at work that the employer is not equipped to handle. The employer
will have approved access from the service user to call the Talisman Foundation to
intervene on his behalf, and to reduce the impact which the person’s illness has
on his work performance.
