There are several studies that clearly demonstrate that social determinants, such as poverty, isolation, stigmatization, and a lack of social support and social cohesion, are risk factors closely associated with the development and continuation of mental health conditions.
Among other factors, they report that quality of living environment and housing, sense of belonging to a community, civic engagement, and healthy lifestyle choices are positive factors that support the rehabilitation of an individual suffering from a mental health condition. However, there are few resources in the Estrie that directly address these protective factors.
In response to this issue, “My Shack” is seeking to implement an apartment-style residence with supervised housing at a modest cost for its clientele in Sherbrooke, in a stimulating, bilingual environment. This project will be the first to offer bilingual services in Estrie.
With this project, the organization seeks to contribute in a meaningful way to the rehabilitation of individuals living with mental health problems.
The Shack will help decrease risk factors while increasing protective factors.
