The Refugee Mental Health Project


This project aims to build settlement, social and health service providers' knowledge and skills regarding refugee mental health and to promote inter-sector and inter-professional collaboration. 

Service providers across Canada can benefit from a range of web-based training, tools and resources, offered free of charge.  These resources include accredited online courses, monthly webinars, e-newsletters and an online Community of Practice with access to subject matter experts.

Recognizing the importance of supporting the mental health needs of the over 35,000 Syrian refugees who have resettled across Canada since November, 2015, the project currently offers the course Refugee Mental Health: Focus on Syrian Refugees; read more.

This project is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
