The Coalition on Richer Diversity (CORD) formally invites members of the community who are mental health professionals and those who work in services providing support to refugees and immigrants to attend our Winter Diversity Event on the topic of Refugee and Immigrant Mental Health. The event will take place on April 23rd 2015, at a St John’s venue that will be confirmed closer to the event date. Also invited are newcomers to NL and any members of the public who are passionate about mental health.
As a stakeholder in this issue, you are invited to share your knowledge and engage in conversation as we explore refugee and immigrant mental health from a local perspective. It will also be an opportunity to network with others – both those in mental health services and those in refugee and immigrant services.
This event will take the shape of group discussions on two main topics:
1) What are the Specific Mental Health Needs of Refugees and Immigrants?
2) How Can We Effectively Address These Needs?
CORD, in its position as an umbrella group concerned mainly with improving the participation of refugees and immigrants in the St. John’s community, will write up a detailed report on the overall findings of this event. The report will be a public record of issues raised and proposed solutions.
Please pre-register by MONDAY, APRIL 20th using this Online registration form.
If you or your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor of this event, please email Projects Coordinator or call Ellie @ 709-754-4122.
This session is part of the ongoing Coalition on Richer Diversity work supported by the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council.
