Fifteen participants took part in individual interviews. Four collective identity profiles emerged: optimistic, changing, insecure and indifferent-disengaged. A number of hypotheses emerged by linking thematic categories ; 1) Respondents’ relationships with majority outgroups as well as social structures and relationships within the ingroup would influence their collective identity profiles. 2) In turn, these profiles would be related to their mental health ; the psychological wellbeing of respondents with an insecure identity profile seems poorer in comparison with the other respondents. 3) Collective identity profiles would influence the use of formal and informal support services. The majority of the respondents expressed a preference to receive help in French, except for those whose profile was indifferent-disengaged.
