Back then, seven parents got together and founded the Association Laurentienne des Parents et Amis du Malade Mental Inc.

Thanks to its great rigour and volunteer efforts, the organization received its first provincial grant in 1990. In 1993, the group bought the little red house on Parent Street to offer family caregivers a haven. In 1998, the name changed to the Association Laurentienne des Proches de la Personne Atteinte de Maladie Mentale Inc.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”606″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1508847680014{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”604″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1519156526657{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”]In 2016, ALPPAMM turned 30 and was at a crossroad. Staff and the Board of Directors undertook a great reflection on the future, asking themselves who they were and what they wanted to be. An action plan was implemented to improve services, extend their outreach across the Laurentians and increase public awareness and recognition of the organization.

From the onset in 2017, a new name was chosen to showcase the core identity and values of the Association laurentienne des proches de la personne atteinte de maladie mentale: La Halte des proches. This new name and a new brand image would allow us to become better known throughout the Laurentides and help us move forward by providing psychosocial intervention, training, conferences and professional custom services.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1508774934007{margin-top: 20px !important;}”][ultimate_spacer height=”40″ height_on_tabs=”40″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”40″ height_on_mob_landscape=”30″ height_on_mob=”30″][dt_sc_simple_heading type=”script” tag=”h6″ text=”Because we are passionate” subtag=”h2″ subtext=”Our blog” class=”divAlignCenter”]Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
