Maisons de fous

In the series Maisons de fous, we can discover the world of group homes, external residences affiliated with the Psychiatric Hospital Louis-H. Lafontaine. The series makes public images of the stark reality of psychiatric institutions for which there is always a serious prejudice. The ultimate goal remains to raise awareness of mental illness, demystify and reduce the stigmas that still plague the "mentally ill".
