The upheavals in the fishing industry, particularly the shrimp industry, are affecting many people. Convergence is proud to introduce its new psychosocial outreach worker for the fishing industry: Patrick Jacques. Patrick has a wealth of experience in intervention, notably as an outreach worker for the RCM of La Côte-de-Gaspé, and is an open-minded, attentive, and committed individual.

His new position was created under a tripartite agreement with Convergence, the RCM of La Côte-de-Gaspé (as part of the Integrated Approach to Social Development in La Côte-de-Gaspé), and the Public Health Department of the CISSS de la Gaspésie.

As a psychosocial outreach worker, Patrick Jacques is in charge of providing specific support to people affected by fisheries-related issues in the Côte-de-Gaspé RCM. As part of his mandate, he also works closely with local organizations to provide better support and tools for people whose lives have been weakened by this situation.
