Building capacity to support the mental health of immigrants and refugees: A toolkit for settlement, social and health service providers
The toolkit is designed to provide a snapshot of essential information, tools, resources and examples of promising practices that can be integrated into the daily work of settlement, social, and health service providers across Canada, with the aim of building the capacity to better support the mental health unique needs of immigrants and refugees.
The toolkit provides a repository of evidence-based research; information on key models of care and frameworks; and an outline of components that are pertinent to service delivery.
Read through this toolkit at your own pace and use it as a reference point when needed. It is a downloadable document that you can print for easy-use or you can navigate it online and visit external links for additional information. We encourage that you share and discuss it with other service providers in your organization and with partners in the community to foster collaboration. It can be used as complementary to other Immigrant and Refugee Mental Health Project learning initiatives as well.
