The Opening Doors Project 2-Day Workshop Series

Connecting the Dots: Migration, Discrimination, and Mental Health

Strengthening mental health, anti-racism & anti-discrimination literacy in our community

February 27 & 28 • 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. | Free • Lunch Provided

Open to: service providers, educators, healthcare providers, law enforcement, employers & government


Join us as we explore:

  • going beyond multiculturalism and diversity and move into anti-racism
  • moving away from a single narrative of migration and see the great diversity that characterizes the experiences of newcomers to Canada
  • a broad understanding of mental health, incorporating the social determinants that impact the health of particular individuals and communities
  • a variety of mental health perspectives and approaches, such as 'sanism' and 'mentalism'
  • the major stressors that affect particular groups and communities
  • understanding stress not only as an individual factor but as a social phenomenon rooted in specific socio-economic conditions
  • the concept of 'intersectionality' to highlight the shifting nature of identity and multiple ways of being
