The Association québécoise des parents et amis de la personne atteinte de maladie mentale (AQPAMM), a non-profit community organization, is proud to announce new services geared specifically at young people, as part of the
T’as ta place (you belong here) program.
hese services include online mental health training sessions and weekly live chats on Instagram. The interface is optimized for mobile devices and computers.
These tools are designed to engage young people aged 13 to 25 and help them deepen their understanding of mental health issues, since stigmas persist despite the fact that mental health is a popular topic among teens.
These online courses are designed to help young people support their friends or family members living with mental health issues. Explore our three free training modules:
1- Understanding mental health issues
2- Taking action to help a friend or family member
3- Supporting a friend or family member during the pandemic.
In addition to these training sessions, AQPAMM invites youth aged 13–25 to chat once a week via the T’as ta place Instagram account.
From April 6, 2021, until June, 2021, young people are invited to chat online with an AQPAMM youth counsellor every Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. All chats are confidential. The discussions are open-ended, but each week will focus on a different theme to fuel the conversation.
AQPAMM offers assistance to families and friends of people living with mental health problems. The organization provides information, referrals, and support. AQPAMM helps our members build healthy relationships with their loved one while nurturing their own well-being. AQPAMM works to break the isolation of families and friends, helps raise awareness among the general public and decision makers to overcome stigma, and promotes the social inclusion of people living with mental health problems.
