L'îlot is a non-profit organization that was created in June 2001 to provide crisis services to the population of Laval. The organization is celebrating 20 years of essential services this year! Since its founding, L'îlot has helped 14,000 people in crisis, in addition to handling nearly 50,000 suicide prevention calls.
L'îlot is an essential cog in the wheel of life: more than 250 workers and some forty organizations trust the quality and efficiency of its services. In collaboration with its partners, the organization has saved several lives in Laval. The Center is proud to contribute to maintaining the lowest suicide rate in Quebec.
The pandemic has created greater psychological distress in the population. Mental health indicators point to greater needs for suicide prevention and crisis intervention. L'îlot wishes to increase its service offer in order to reach more Laval residents requiring mental health and suicide prevention services. This year, therefore, it launched a major project, The Archipelago of L'îlot, aimed at acquiring a building that will allow it to optimize its services. The acquisition of a larger building than the current one, that will allow to accommodate more clients, is essential for the pursuit of the unique and essential vocation of the center for the next 20 years.
L'îlot is a center whose mission is to offer a range of crisis services to adults and telephone intervention in suicide prevention, in complementarity and continuity with all the partners in Laval.
Our services are all offered in French and in English.
Available 24/7, Prévention Suicide Laval is an intervention line specializing in suicide prevention. At all times, a qualified worker will be able to respond to calls from anyone concerned about suicide.
For help, call without hesitation 450-629-2911 (Laval) or everywhere in Quebec 1 866 APPELLE (277-3553).
Crisis services are offered 24/7. Telephone interventions, assessment of the crisis situation, short-term housing and follow-up in the community are offered as needed.

In 2021, L'îlot embarked on a major project, The Archipelago of L'îlot, which aims to acquire a more spacious building. This project will ensure the sustainability of the organization while making it possible to better respond to the constant increase of demands in crisis and suicide prevention services in Laval.
