Awareness activities

These activities help to raise awareness and community or public network partners to the reality of members of family or friends of a person with mental health disorder. They also help raise awareness on various issues of mental health in order to fight against stigma and taboos.


Hospital and clinic liaison

A volunteer Liaison Representative is available on the premises of the hospital or clinic to provide support for families who have a mentally ill family member inside or awaiting evaluation.


Tailored presentation (schools, police, etc.)

We offer customized presentations in different settings (school, workplace, police force, community, etc.) to increase the general awareness of mental health disorders and to decrease the stigma surrounding them in order to facilitate access to mental health services.


Promotional kiosks

We were at the Annual Convention of Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers, November 27th and 28th 2015, at Palais des Congrès de Montréal. It was a great opportunity to introduce our organization to teachers and other professionals in schools, talk with them about mental health and to present our services. Increasingly informed of mental health disorder issues (especially due to the stigma), these professionals can better cope with the major challenges they are facing and better know the resources at their disposal to help young people. A taboo subject in this age range, youth are even more affected by the disorder of their loved one and they don’t dare to speak about it. Just by letting them know about this new support group is a giant step towards their well-being.
