La Fondation Compagnom’s main mission is to promote better mental health in the population by implementing various preventive initiatives.
La Fondation Compagnom has three main objectives:
Promote the emotional and psychological development of people with mental health or social inclusion problems and increase their autonomy to make a concrete contribution to improving their quality of life
Provide respite and suitable jobs for people with mental health problems and/or who are emotionally or psychologically disadvantaged
Raise awareness of the challenges related to mental health issues, specifically those related to mood disorders, mainly through the implementation of an information campaign on persistent depressive disorder (PDD)
Serge Choinière created the Centre de croissance Compagnom in 2012 to offer respite to people with mental health problems and hold activities promoting better mental health in the population.
In 2016, the Centre de croissance Compagnom became La Fondation Compagnom. It then decided to broaden its mission to actively contribute to raising awareness of mental health disorders through various preventive initiatives.
The foundation is keeping sight of its core objectives: to promote the emotional and psychological development of people experiencing mental health problems and thus contribute to improving their quality of life.
