The staff, mentors and trainees of the Social Aetiology of Mental Illness [SAMI] training program is thankful to each of our presenters and participants for another engaging season of the SAMI webinar series.
On June 12, 2012, Dr. Samuel Noh, SAMI co-PI and mentor and the Head of the Culture, Community and Health Studies program at the University of Toronto
will present "Social Diversity, Discrimination, and Health: Culture, Ethnicity and Resilience". Research on immigrant health demonstrates that over years of residence in Canada and across generations, immigrants gradually give away their health advantage, and in some ethnic groups, second and third generation immigrants show clearly inferior health status compared to native-born population samples. This webinar will report results from a program of research in discrimination and health to show how personal experiences of social exclusion or discrimination is linked to mental health problems.
