Crise-Ado-Famille-Enfance (CAFE)

Are you feeling overwhelmed by a difficult family situation, your child’s behaviour, or constant arguing at home? You’ve tried several things, but the fighting still hasn’t stopped?


The Last Straw

If that sounds familiar, call us. A professional can help you find a solution.

  • “The school has called me several times about my son’s behaviour. He’s become aggressive. We can’t get through to him anymore.”
  • “My daughter refuses to listen. She goes out without permission, she’s spending time with new friends, and I’m sure she’s on something. She calls me terrible names. I don’t recognize her anymore.”
  • “My parents are too strict, they’re always on my case. I can’t do anything anymore. I just want to get out of there.”
  • “Our son is always alone; he has no friends and doesn’t do any sports or activities. The other day, he told me he wished he could just disappear. We’re worried about him.”

The Crise-Ado-Famille-Enfance (CAFE) program is for families and young people under age 18 who are in crisis.

Help is available to both parents and children:

  • 24 hours a day
  • 7 days a week
  • The service is available 365 days/year
