Counselling and Therapy

Counselling can be an essential part of coping with and recovering from a mental illness, both for the person living with a mental illness and for their loved ones.

AMI-Quebec offers free counselling for caregivers (families and friends of someone living with mental illness). Please click HERE for more information.

For organizations that offer counselling for individuals suffering from mental health issues, including art therapy, and counselling for family members, please see below. Most offer free services or charge on a sliding scale.
