RMHP project components


The Refugee Mental Health Project

Refugees represent a vulnerable population that is at risk for mental health problems. It is in the post-migration context where service providers can provide mental health support to refugees.

This project aims to build settlement, social service and health care providers knowledge and skills and to promote inter-sector and inter-professional collaboration by developing networks and providing resources relevant to refugee mental health.

We invite you to participate in the accredited online courses, monthly webinars, e-newsletters and online community of practice with access to subject matter experts, all offered as part of the Refugee Mental Health Project.

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