The population of immigrant and refugee children, youth and families in Canada continues to grow rapidly. It is known that positive mental health and well-being are vital to the successful resettlement of newcomers. However, many barriers and challenges experienced during settlement, and a lack of resources for service providers to promote positive mental health, puts the mental health of newcomer individuals and families at risk. To address this, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) Mental Health Promotion Program embarked on a project, funded through a Children’s Hospital Foundation Child Health Advisory Committee (CHAC) grant. This webinar will highlight this innovative project including key themes from the literature review, environmental scan of health promotion practices, and numerous consultations. The development of a strength-based resource intended for use by service providers to promote the mental health and well-being of newcomer families as they settle will be showcased.
