There are over 15,000 Special Care Counsellors in Quebec and our services are gaining recognition by the general population. They promote our professional skill set as well as the various diverse roles we have. 

This week also serves to develop a sense of belonging and pride for Special Care Counselling professionals.

Promoting our Profession

We have been working in multiple sectors (public, community and private) for over 50 years. We play key roles, particularly in the field of mental health and human relations. In a context of full social participation, we are actively working in the process of social integration of the person. Our specific field of intervention leads us to intervene on a daily basis with the most diverse and vulnerable clienteles. We would like to take the opportunity during this week to emphasize the importance of our role in the field.

Promotional Poster

To celebrate the event and to allow Special Care Counsellors to show their pride, the QASCC will create an official poster available each year. Organizations will be able to download this poster to promote this week dedicated to Special Care Counselling professionals.
