Intensive Support and Supervision Program (ISSP)

The Intensive Support and Supervision Program (ISSP) offers intensive youth and family therapy. ISSP is for youth between 12 and 17 years of age who have been found guilty of an offence that would result in custody, but whose mental health challenges are determined to best be addressed by home and community interventions.

Over a period of 6-24 months, goals are developed and a treatment plan is put in place to address the child’s particular needs. ISSP builds on the child’s strengths while providing intensive support to the child and their family at home.

Lutherwood’s wide range of resources and services such as its crisis response, life skills development, and educational, employment and housing services may be accessed as needed. The youth and their family/caregiver are also connected to other community support agencies as appropriate.
