Youth at Risk

Psychosocial service at school

Social workers are involved with youth in primary and secondary school who are experiencing difficulties in their environment that impact their social or academic functioning. The intervention takes place on a voluntary and interdisciplinary context. Social workers involved in schools foster dialogue and collaboration between the school, the family and other Montréal West Island Integrated University Health and Social Services Centre services including community resources. Especially in secondary school, social workers can participate in prevention and promotional activities.
