Participants will be given the opportunity to:

  • Understand the impact of stigma on vulnerable newcomers;
  • Learn about the difference between “mental health” & “mental illness”;
  • Explore differences in the understanding of mental illness across cultures;
  • Learn how to talk to vulnerable newcomers with mental illness, including appropriate terminology to use;
  • Understand what trauma-informed care is, and why it is so important.

This is a “train the trainer” workshop. Participants will be provided with a short PowerPoint presentation with talking points that they can use to briefly present the information they learned with their organizations.
