South Okanagan Similkameen team-based care helps at-risk patients get health and lives on track

People in the Penticton area who have mental health or substance use challenges are getting their lives back on track thanks to a committed, caring team made up of doctors, mental health professionals, and a social worker at the Martin Street Outreach Clinic. A partnership between the South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice and Interior Health, the clinic has supported more than 750 clients since opening in May 2015.

Using a team-based approach to care, the Martin Street Outreach Clinic ensures that at-risk patients in Penticton have access to well-rounded medical and community support, including mental health/substance use and primary care services, as well as help with tasks such as finding housing, filling out forms for welfare benefits, and connecting to community services that are available to help them.
