The West Island LGBTQ2+ Centre is the only LGBTQ2+ resource in the West Island region of Montreal. The Centre has a series of programs that cater to different demographics within the community.
Founded in 2011, the LGBTQ Youth Centre was the inaugural program of the Centres, and was aimed at youth between the ages of 14 and 21. The ages were changed when the Centre’s programs amalgamated.
Support group integrated with Interligne crisis line
Interligne is a first response centre that provides help and information to those concerned with sexual orientation and gender diversity. Because our services are accessible 24 hours/day, we are able to offer support to the LGBTQ+ communities, their friends and family and to service providers in the health, education and social service sectors. Through our outreach and awareness activities, we also promote greater openness to LGBTQ+ realities.
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.
