OCASI – Mental Health Promotion in Immigrant and Refugee Serving Organizations Project

This project is funded by Immigration Refugee Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through the Settlement Program Service Delivery Improvements Funding (SDI) Stream.

As the lead organization on this project, OCASI is partnering with community organizations across three sectors (immigrant and refugee serving organizations, primary health, and community mental health) to carry out the project over three years (2018 – 2021).

The project’s overall goal is to build the capacity of newcomer and refugee services to promote mental health and newcomer wellbeing and respond to mental health issues. The project aims to strengthen collaborations and partnerships between newcomer and refugee serving organizations, primary health, and mental health sectors through the development of a service model for mental health promotion.
