Mental Health Notes
A free webinar series about refugee mental health is now available for viewing online at any time. CMHA Ontario launched the four-part series to enhance the capacity of the mental health and additions sector to support refugees. More than 600 participants took part in the four-part series in February, March, April and May 2016. Although the series was initially targeted at the mental health and addictions sector, participants came from many different fields – including settlement, broader health system, public education, child and youth services, community and social services and even individual private refugee sponsors – and found the sessions helpful.
