The Immigrant and Refugee Mental Health Project’s online course is a free, self-directed training that is open to front-line service providers across Canada* who are working with newly-arrived immigrants and refugees. The course offers evidence-based information for you to provide care and support to both immigrants and refugees arriving to Canada. It provides an overview on the social determinants of health and its impact on mental health. It emphasizes the role of the migration trajectory when addressing the mental health of immigrant and refugees, while highlighting the specific needs of subpopulations. The course is designed to build your capacity in providing equitable access to support and treatment, while highlighting the necessity of partnerships among sectors. As a course participant, you are given access to promising practices and resources applicable to settlement and health service sectors in facilitating successful integration. The course’s interactive learning environment lets you engage with experts in the field and thousands of service providers from across Canada. There will be two streams offered: (1) settlement and social providers (2) health care providers.
