MHANYS is pleased to bring you this presentation in celebration of May as Mental Health Awareness Month!

It is more important than ever to address the mental health concerns of immigrants.

  • 1 in 5 New Yorkers is an immigrant.
  • 1 in 4 children has at least one immigrant parent.
  • New York is the top 3rd refugee resettlement state, with 94% of NY refugees resettled in upstate counties.
  • Over 1 million New Yorkers live with at least one family member who is undocumented.

This webinar explores the acculturation process experienced by immigrants and its influence on mental health; as well as experienced barriers to service and challenges during care. Cultural competence approaches are explored.
