The Immigrant and Refugee Mental Health course

Our flagship course, this is a free, online, self-directed training that offers a comprehensive overview of immigrant and refugee mental health, focusing on subgroups at risks. It provides in-depth discussion on how context and culture influence mental health and mental illness, as well as providing sample tools and resources for use in various practice settings, and offering evidence-based strategies and interventions to help you provide better services and supports to different immigrant and refugee populations. In it, you will find practical examples of promising and innovative practices effective in improving outcomes for different groups of immigrants and refugees.

The course is offered in two streams: 1) Settlement and social service providers and 2) Healthcare providers
