This-time limited intervention is delivered in three phases, each usually lasting 3 months. Each phase decreases in service intensity and results with the intervention ensuring the participant is linked to the appropriate community services to ensure housing and life stability. The trainings include an overview of CTI and review the specific treatment areas supported by this intervention.
