Breaking Barriers to Newcomer Mental Health in Niagara @ Online
Apr 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The process of migration and resettlement can be extremely challenging and often puts the mental health and well-being of newcomers at risk. Despite pertinent and clear mental health issues in the newcomer population, availability and accessibility of services remain an issue. As this population continues to grow, it is essential to assess the prevalence of mental health issues in newcomers in order to adapt services accordingly. During this webinar, presenters will discuss: Needs of newcomers and refugees Barriers to accessing Mental Health Support Environmental Scan & Recommendations Best Practice Guidelines Presenters: Zainab Awad, Mental Health Program Coordinator, Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre Ali Ahmed, Mental Health Program Support Worker, Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre This event is hosted by Niagara Connects in partnership with Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre.
