Psychosocial listening point
If you are experiencing particular problems (separation, anxiety, family conflict, social isolation, domestic violence…) you can come and meet a psychosocial worker to speak confidentially about your situation. During six sessions, this coaching will help you find ways and resources to overcome these difficulties. It is a free service for immigrants, regardless of their immigration status.
Accompaniment and support for immigrant and racialized women
The women’s committee, which includes social workers and counsellors from La Maisonnée and from diverse backgrounds, is there to support you and guide you to facilitate your involvement in the host society. Coffee meetings are offered to create a place of free expression, sharing and exchange between women. Workshops are scheduled according to women’s needs.
