The Intensive Support and Supervision Program (ISSP) provides an intensive, clinically-focused, community-based, individualized program designed to deliver services appropriate to the youth's level of functioning, specific needs and mental health diagnoses that may be contributing factors to the youth's offending behaviours.

The ISSP goals include:

• Providing intensive services to assist the young person and their family
• Strengthen emotional, physical and psychological well-being of the young person
• Change offending behaviours of the young person
• Reduce use of custody sentences for youth with mental health diagnoses
• Transition planning for the young person and their family
• Linking the young person and their family to other community support services

Referrals are made through the youth court as an alternative to a custody sentence for youth who have been convicted of an offence and have a mental health diagnoses.
