Since 1985, the mission of Réseau Alternatif et Communautaire des ORganismes (RACOR) en santé mentale de l’île de Montréal [Alternative and Community Network of Organizations in mental health on Montreal island] is to bring together, support, equip and represent community and alternative organizations in the region that work in mental health field.
The group is dedicated to promote the recognition of the unique competencies of its organizations, and the innovative and indispensable nature of the services they offer to the population. RACOR also aims to raise awareness, educate, and combat stigmas among government agencies and the general population.
We believe that each person has a story and each story has a face.
