The Toolkit is a repository of resources compiled to support service providers in appropriately responding to the mental health needs of recent immigrants and refugees. It is meant to be an online resource with information, ideas, tools and materials for settlement, social service and health service providers as they assist clients to develop awareness of mental health issues, encourage help-seeking and deal with stigma.
The updated toolkit will launch with resources related to immigrant mental health in winter 2018. Until then, view the toolkit specific to refugee mental health resources below.
This online toolkit will constantly evolve and we welcome your suggestions for material relevant to immigrant and refugee mental health. If you would like to make a suggestion, please email us.
