About the Session:
In Canada, around 520 700 people with mental health issues are inadequately housed (MHCC, 2013). The Canadian Mental Health Association – Quebec Division and Montreal Branch and its partners of the Montreal Network for autonomous housing intended for people with a mental health problem have explored, through two consultations, how the private rental market could represent a possible solution for these people. We will present the results of these consultations as well as recommendations related to the identification of four major issues.
Diane Vinet is Executive Director at CMHA – Quebec Division and Montreal Branch. She has over 30 years of experience as a manager in the social and community economics field. The focus of her intervention has always been related to supportive environments as determinants of overall health.
Marie-Ève Lapointe is Program Advisor at CMHA – Quebec Division and Montreal Branch. She is responsible for coordinating programs and committees that concern various audiences, including seniors and cultural communities, and that address various determinants of health, such as housing and employment.
