Welcome to the PRISM-ACCESS Open Minds online referral service!
Through this website, you can access a referral form that will allow you or a young person you care about to receive help. A youth worker will be able to directly offer services pertaining to mental and physical health, advice on relationships, studies, work, information on financial and legal aid, or any other situation.
*Please note that this is a new referral service that is only available to youth between the ages of 12 and 25 years old in Canada who frequent one of the following Montreal neighbourhoods: St-Henri; Little Burgundy; Griffintown; Verdun; Pointe St-Charles; Côte-St-Paul; Ville-Émard; Plateau Ville-Marie; Nuns’ Island.
This is not an emergency service.
How does it work???
Step 1: You’ll be asked for some basic information about yourself. There are no right or wrong answers. You can skip questions by clicking “next” or change your information by clicking “back.”
Step 2: Once you have completed the form, your referral will be sent to a youth mental health worker in your community. They will contact you within three days, using the method of your choice (e.g., text, phone, email).
