CLSC Dorval-Lachine-LaSalle has been caring for the mental health needs of young people from the communities of Montréal’s southwest for nearly a decade. Our clientele is made up 22,000 young people living in the boroughs of Dorval, Lachine, and LaSalle, including Ville Saint-Pierre. Close to two thirds of them are children of recent immigrants with linguistically, economically, and ethnically diverse backgrounds.
The CLSC Dorval-Lachine-LaSalle is excited to be participating in ACCESS Open Minds, a pan-Canadian research and evaluation project. Since the beginning of the project, we have made several key changes to our clinical practices to provide integrated mental health services. A youth zone will soon be available at CLSC Lachine to provide quick, user-friendly, and secure access to our care and services. Our goal is to put the needs of young people and their families first, and to make sure their voices are heard.
Integrating the ACCESS Open Minds framework with the existing CLSC structure enables us to focus more on providing individualized care and ensure that appropriate, top-quality services are provided within a reasonable time. Young people can now benefit from our services until the age of 25, and avoid being left without support at the age of 18. Fostering youth participation, and that of their family and friends, is among our priorities.
This project gives the CLSC Dorval-Lachine-LaSalle an opportunity to work with several community partners to actively help reduce stigma and discrimination around mental health. We believe everyone should be treated as a person, not as a problem.
