Tri-Cities Wrap Around Model of Care for Mental Health in Immigrant Families
Women’s mental health postpartum has been impacted by COVID-19 because of the lack of support during and post-delivery. Immigrant women with children aged 0-6 years old express feelings of anxiety, distress and fear, as they navigate new systems without culturally appropriate supports. The mental health impacts on women and/or parents can influence the physical, psychological and social development of young children.
A Tri-Cities Wrap Around Model of Care for Mental Health in Immigrant Families project aims to support the community in promoting mental health literacy by:
- Strengthening the capacity of early years’ service providers in culturally appropriate mental health promotion and literacy through training, tools and knowledge exchange
- Supporting immigrant families with a coordinated model of care that would enhance their mental health and wellbeing.
Immigrant families are connected with S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’ Early Childhood Development team to support their individual needs, participate in parent education workshops and family-oriented activities to support their wellness in the community. Visit here for more information.
In collaboration with the Tri-Cities Local Immigration Partnership, the project offers service providers training and networking opportunities to enhance their practice around culturally appropriate mental health literacy and promotion.
