The Immigrant and Refugee Mental Health Project hosts monthly webinars featuring presenters from across Canada. Webinars are on a range of topics based on the needs and interests you have identified as being important. Webinars offer practical and actionable strategies or resources that you can use in your work to promote, support and treat the mental health of immigrants and refugees.
These one-hour webinars include a 30-minute presentation by professionals in the settlement, social or health services sectors followed by a 30-minute "Q&A" session where we encourage you to ask questions, pose scenarios and to generally discuss your practice with these experts in the field.
Join us in our upcoming webinars! Registration is easy and free.
