PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Diversity in Action: Adapting Mental Health Services for Newcomer Families is a pilot project intended to deal with the mental health needs of newcomer groups in Scarborough, home to the largest number of new immigrants to Toronto. The aim of this project is not only to connect newcomers to the agencies that deliver traditional mental health services. It is also to work with representatives of the relevant ethno-cultural groups to develop new approaches that will enhance the ability of service providers to help newcomer children and families.

The partners of this effort include The Psychology Foundation of Canada and a number of agencies that provide support and services to newcomers to Scarborough in a variety of areas, including health and mental health, child and family support and education.
 
Our agency partners include:
 
Aisling Discoveries - Child and Family Centre
 
East Metro Youth Services (EMYS)
 
Rosalie Hall - A Youth Parent Resource Centre
 
Youthlink
 
In time, the goal is to expand the program for use in other communities across Canada.

A downloadable program brochure is now available.
