Journey to Promote Mental Health: A Training Series for Community Service Workers
These training modules address the issues of mental health and the unique challenges that immigrants and refugees face that may increase their risk of developing mental health difficulties. The training modules use a social justice approach and are based on holistic health framework. Guiding principles include mental health as a continuum, and a service approach with principles that include empowerment and capacity building; diversity and cultural competence; wellness and recovery; and community participation.
Family Violence against Immigrant & Refugee Women: Community Development Strategies
This training is intended for immigrant service and other community-based organizations that are in a unique capacity to reach vulnerable and/or isolated immigrant women and their communities. It addresses the need to enhance domestic violence prevention strategies to reach immigrant and refugee women, including women without legal immigration status, trafficked women and women from racialized low-income communities.
Prevention of Domestic Violence against Immigrant and Refugee Women through Early Intervention
This training is intended for settlement service providers and anyone who frequently provides services to immigrants, refugees and undocumented women.
Newcomer Youth Settlement Guide for Service Providers: Serving Youth in Newcomer Communities
The OCASI Newcomer Youth Settlement Guide for Service Providers is intended as a guide and not as a definitive prescriptive document. It is the outcome of youth-led, community-based research carried out in collaboration with settlement workers selected from across Ontario. The document draws on some of the challenges and recommendations from existing research, however, most of the challenges and recommendations outlined were obtained from the suggestions and proposals made by youth and settlement workers during the OCASI Services for Youth in Newcomer Communities (SYNC) project research.
