New Resource from CAMH--Working with Immigrant Women: Issues and Strategies for Mental Health Professionals

Working with Immigrant Women: Issues and Strategies for Mental Health Professionals (edited by Sepali Guruge and Enid Collins) addresses the gap between the needs of newcomer women and established structures and practices in Canada's mental health care system. With an interest in changing paradigms in mental health practice, the multidisciplinary group of authors analyzes issues affecting women's mental health and illnesses, critically examines literature and current research and suggests practice strategies for mental health professionals. Working with Immigrant Women highlights the intersecting oppressions experienced by women while emphasizing their strengths and resiliencies. It also demonstrates how women are active participants in shaping their mental health and responding to mental health problems.
