Innovations in Mental Health and Addictions Learning Series – Newcomer Collaborative Community Mental Health Service
The Newcomer Trauma-Focused Service is a program designed to provide mental health support to ethno-cultural and racialized populations (refugees and immigrants) who have had experiences of moderate-to-severe trauma. Program participants are provided with opportunities for long-term therapy, psychological and psychiatric services, case management and connections to the formal mental health system. This collaborative model utilizes partnerships with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, Family Dynamics and various ethno-cultural and faith communities to provide holistic, trauma-informed and culturally appropriate supports to newcomer individuals, families and communities regardless of their immigration status or time in Manitoba. Our presentation will also include information on the other programs and services offered by Aurora Family Therapy Centre.
