Our ever-broadening expertise – RESEARCH  (ONE TO FIVE YEAR COMMITMENT)

  • ACCESS Canada project: A joint initiative of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Graham Boeckh Foundation, this project takes a novel transformational research approach aimed at catalyzing fundamental change in Canadian youth mental health care over a five-year horizon. Dans la rue is one of the research sites for the project.
  • Dans la rue’s Family Services and one of our psychologists are taking part in a study on the use of genograms as a “generational” intervention tool for reaching out to street youth and putting an end to the cycle of dysfunctional parenting. This action-research project is led by Dr. Sophie Gilbert, a professor with the Psychology Department, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).
  • Dans la rue is helping to recruit participants from the day centre for a research project on the use of sexual health–related services by Montreal street youth.
  • As a partner of the Rond-Point project, Dans la rue is involved in the evaluation and implementation phrases.
