Awareness Activities

The goal of awareness activities is to educate the public about mental illness in order to try to reduce the stigma associated with it. We want to sensitize the public about mental illness and help them understand what it is as well as what impact it can have on friends, family members and caregivers. We also want to use these awareness activities as a way to expand our reach and let more people in need know about what help, services and resources that they can find at our organization.


Hospital and Clinic Liaison

A volunteer Liaison Representative is available at a hospital or clinic to provide support for friends, families and/or caregivers whose loved one with a mental health disorder or mental illness is inside or awaiting evaluation.


Tailored Presentations (Schools, Police, Etc.)

We offer a variety of presentations in different settings (schools, workplaces, police forces, communities, etc.). These presentations aim to increase awareness about mental illnesses, decrease the stigma surrounding it and 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.
