respite activities

Fun wellness activities that provide participants with relaxation and enjoyment as a getaway from their concerns



art therapy

Individual counselling and group workshops led by an art therapist for youths 5 to 17 years of age that have a parent or another person they care about struggling with a mental health problem. The approach used combines the use of verbal expression and artistic creation to explore issues specific to the youths and their needs. Among other things, it enables the child to express their emotions and reflect on their experience via various art techniques, such as drawing, painting, collage, and modelling. Artistic talent is not required.


partnership with different professionals

To ensure a coordinated intervention, the mental health professionals at La Halte maintain partnerships with different community-based and health network stakeholders. We foster an interdisciplinary approach.
