The SOLAS Transition from Corrections (TFC) is available in Townsville.
TFC is a Queensland Health specific service and is available for people living in a correctional facility with mental distress. Referrals to this service are managed by Queensland Health Prison Mental Health Services.
SOLAS Lifestyle Support Workers work with the person and Correctional Officers prior to release to develop a plan for a smooth transition back into the community.
Upon release from the correctional facility, SOLAS Lifestyle Support Workers and Peer Support Workers work with the person to develop a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) to achieve his/her goals and aspirations to live a good life in the community.
TFC services support people to:
- Live independently in their home
- Manage everyday tasks
- Connect with community supports
- Access community events
- Prepare for work.
