Our mission at Fondation Jeunes en Tête is aimed at preventing psychological distress in Quebec youth aged 11 to 18.
We accomplish this mission by reaching out to teens in schools through our Partners for Life program and by supporting recognized community organizations and Canadian mental health charities that complement our work. We also create synergy among those who work with youth, in order to maximize our joint impact on young people.
The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) was launched in 1985 by a group who saw the need to provide information and resources to communities to reduce the suicide rate and minimize the harmful consequences of suicidal behaviour. Like many others, CASP envisions a world in which people enjoy an optimal quality of life, are long-living, socially responsible, and optimistic about the future.
AMI-Quebec offers a wide menu of programs and activities to help you better cope with the challenges of mental illness in your family. Some programs are for caregivers only, while others are mixed and welcome both caregivers and individuals with a lived experience of mental illness. Our programs are available across Quebec (via telephone or internet), and our office is in Montreal.
