The University of Toronto Students’ Union will be hosting its second event for eXpression Against Oppression called “Barrier Free Access to Mental Health Services” on February 12th, 2019 from 6-9 pm at the Earth Sciences Centre (room: B149).

This event will be a panel discussion focusing on the systematic barriers affecting immigrant and refugee youth with mental health issues from seeking help. Discussions will focus on various challenges faced by newcomers in addition to stigma including financial constraints, language barriers and trouble navigating the health-care system that prevents racialized groups from receiving help. Issues of racism, sexism, classism and a heightened stigma around mental health within the communities itself will be raised. This panel will include two guest speakers, Dr. Natasha Browne and Tsewang Lhadon.

Dr. Natasha Browne is a psychologist based in Toronto, who often works with African, Caribbean and Black (ABC) clients. Tsewang Lhadon is a settlement worker with the community service agency called CultureLink who through settlement and community organization works to develop and deliver services to meet the needs of diverse communities.

There will be a period after the panel for Q&A. If you have questions or concerns contact [email protected]
