Love this insight of check-ins in advance of session, not having it all depend on the session. And client-led.

Aswani Siwakoti
*clap clap*

Welcome to the Frayme Network Rita-anne!
Yvonne Pelling
I am wondering who funded both of these projects presented today? Then specifically for Adian, I am wondering what the timeline was from conception to roll out for platform? How many organizations, clinicians, care providers are currently using the platform? And lastly, is there a space in the platform for families to contribute information or access any or some of the information about the person?
Maddi Mathon

are the pilots being evaluated to ensure that we generate and build an evidence base and continue to further improve after the pilot period?

Angie Hamilton
Glad to here there is the capacity to include families.

There isn’t yet an existing number for the crisis team - the city will be partnering with community agencies to operate the service and once those partnerships have been confirmed, the numbers will be publicized.

Fantastic, thorough responses to my question. Thanks!

There will be an RFP process for agencies to bid for contracts to operate the service.
