The Newcomer Collaborative Community Mental Health Service provides long-term individual, relationship, family and group mental health support (therapy) to newcomers who have experienced moderate to severe trauma. Our goal is to provide community-based, trauma-informed and culturally-competent supports to newcomers to help promote recovery and resilience. No formal diagnosis is required to access the program and services are done in the clients’ language of preference.
In addition to therapy, individuals can also receive case management services (support for areas like housing, food security, medical appointments, etc.), referrals to relevant community resources, access to psychiatry and psychology services, and community connections through our Newcomer Community Development Program.
Support for ethno-cultural and faith groups is also available to help communities learn about the causes, signs and symptoms of mental health and how to access mental health supports.
All newcomers are eligible for this program including: government assisted refugees (GARs), privately Sponsored Refugees (PSRs), refugee claimants, international students, immigrants (economic, provincial nominee, etc.), temporary foreign workers (TFWs) and newcomers who have become Canadian citizens.
