In Quebec, government measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) are breaking your routine and lifestyle habits, in addition to causing great concern.
This is why the Ordre des psychologues du Québec has taken the initiative to put THIS PAGE online, containing many psychological tips and tools as well as useful information for everyone.

Frequently asked questions
Gathering / proximity
Adequate protection should be given as a priority to people with weak immune systems, those with chronic diseases or the elderly. These people should refrain from being around people and remain confined for the time being.
For others, if you are experiencing difficulties with your child and it is necessary for family balance to have support, a healthy person in your family can take care of your child without you falling into the trap of illegality. The idea is to exchange the child in a short period of time, with only two adults and to respect the suggested health rules. Obviously, we are talking about a situation where the child or the parent could suffer if no help is provided.
If no one around you can play this role or if you would like to discuss with a social worker what actions will help you get through this period more easily, you are invited to contact 1 855 494-1686 ext. 1213.
