Welcome to the Access 1 homepage.

Please note there have been some recent changes. CASH – Coordinated Access to Supportive Housing and Access 1 (the coordinated access point to individual mental health supportive services) have recently integrated to form The Mental Health and Addictions Access Point, informally known as The Access Point. This integration means you can now apply for supportive housing and/or individual mental health supports like case management or assertive community treatment using the same common application form and intake process. To apply for these services, please click on this link www.theaccesspoint.ca to be directed to the new website for The Access Point.


Access 1 helps you connect to individual mental health services in Toronto. 
How does it work?
