Get involved

Sharing information

Accord Mauricie has materials you can distribute to raise awareness around you or give to a loved one who might benefit from them. In the same way, your presence and your listening skills can make a difference and encourage a person to seek help, whether he or she is a victim or is practicing violent behaviour. Don’t hesitate to call us, we can guide you!
