‘Chill space’ in Lachine offers swift access to youth mental-health care – Montreal Gazette

May 29, 2019

Our very own ACCESS Open Minds DLL site was mentioned in the Montreal Gazette. The article focused on the “chill space” they launched and the benefits of having an area that youth can visit to unwind and access care as needed.

Outlined in the article are some of ACCESS Open Mind’s key elements such as early intervention (within 72 hours) and rapid access to care (an appointment booked with a therapist within 30 days). The article also extensively covers the role of youth liaisons at the site and provides a first-hand description from one of DLL’s youth liaisons.
