The Newcomer Mental Health Matters: Bridging Gaps In Services Project aims to increase understanding of the mental health needs of newcomers including refugee communities in Alberta to address gaps in mental health services. This will be achieved with the support of project partners CMHA-Edmonton, Distress Centre Calgary, and 211 Alberta, through the creation and delivery of mental health-related training courses and the creation of a mental health supports audit tool that will allow settlement and integration agencies to assess the strengths and gaps in their capacities in supporting the mental health needs of their newcomer clients. Lastly, the program will promote mental health resources and referrals for coordinated service delivery, including an upgrade to the existing database hosted at 211 Alberta.

Funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
