Sharing initiatives and success stories: Drawing on the community outreach approach to act on protective factors in mental health

Speaker: Florent St-Onge


Florent, a specialized educator at CPSC l’Étoile in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, presents an outreach approach to improving the mental health of vulnerable families. This approach involves being on the ground, without appointments or follow-up, and building trusting relationships by becoming an active member of the community. Florent stresses the importance of seeing the people behind the problems, taking the time to get to know them, and allowing families to get to know them too. He shares concrete examples where this approach has broken down barriers and created peer-to-peer relationships, underlining its effectiveness in the field of mental health.
