In the last two years, over 40,000 Syrian refugees have resettled across Canada. As with other refugee populations, Syrian refugees are diverse and heterogeneous – in culture, language and religious background, for example.
In this webinar, Jeanette Gevikoglu and Maida Icliates of Armenian Family Support Services discuss the mental health support services they provide to Syrian refugees in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and how they meet the unique needs and challenges of this refugee population, such as challenges in integration and adaption to life in Canada.
About the Refugee Mental Health Project:
The Refugee Mental Health Project is an initiative aiming to build settlement, social and health service providers’ knowledge and skills regarding refugee mental health. This project, coordinated from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) also works to promote inter-sector and inter-professional collaboration by developing networks and providing resources relevant to refugee mental health.
