Laurence is Project Manager and Knowledge Broker (on stigma and disclosing) for Quebec’s provincial group on stigma (Groupe provincial sur la stigmatisation et la discrimination en santé mentale) at the Association québécoise pour la réadaptation psychosociale (AQRP). Professionaly trained to be a Social Worker, he now uses his lived experience to enrich his work as a professional carer and through knowledge transferring activities throughout Quebec and Canada.

Laurence only recently began publicly disclosing his personal experiences with mental health problems, recovery, and with health care services after hearing an inspiring sentence, that said, “If only those in crisis disclose against their will and those who get better stop talking about it, we give the world a false message on what it is to be human, to have difficulties, and on the hope to overcome it and have a full and meaningful life.”
