Mental Health

Peel Newcomer Strategy Group is working with members of its Service Delivery Network (SDN) table and other stakeholders to develop a report on the role of the settlement sector in supporting mental health for newcomers — a strategic priority.

The report synthesizes stakeholder insights, including short-term counsellors from Peel’s settlement sector, and identifies key issues related to settlement service delivery and the mental health needs of clients. Innovations and opportunities for greater connection among various service providers will be highlighted.

The report will be a launching point for discussion at a cross-sectoral forum in 2023.
