Since 2009, the Opening Doors Project (ODP) at the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)-Toronto has been successful, using a unique programmatic intervention approach of a peer-facilitated, province-wide, free workshop series on mental health, equity and diversity within the newcomer/settlement communities.

The ODP continues to have successful service outcome and impact across Ontario, meeting its service goal of strengthening, fostering and cultivating healthier Ontario communities. Most of us will agree that racialized people, newcomers and people with mental health concerns experience discrimination and racism in Canada. So how does the ODP’s service model and implementation work to raise awareness of the experiences of those within the newcomer and mental health communities?

The Opening Doors Project facilitates “interactive and experiential, peer-led workshops that address mental health, racism and discrimination within newcomer communities and communities of mental health survivors”.

Join this webinar with Everdene Francis, MSW, RSW, Program Coordinator, and Shahrzad Shahriari, BSc.Psych., MSW, RSW, Curriculum Coordinator, from CMHA Toronto, as they discuss the ODP.

This webinar is hosted by CMHA Toronto.
