IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE HEALTH
Transcultural Mental Health Care
This project is part of the overall services transformation in mental health, focusing on the needs of immigrants and refugees. London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) is in a process of renewing clinical services, through community engagement and partnership. Building on the experience of other hospitals that have implemented similar initiatives, this project engaged staff and community members to identify barriers in mental health services, and establish a new model of care working closely with our partners in the community to provide family-centered mental health care that is timely, comprehensive, culturally sensitive, integrated and compassionate.
