About The Program
Multicultural Women’s Wellness Groups promote the mental health of individuals who face social isolation and who experience cultural and linguistic barriers. These groups encourage and empower those who, because of difficult life circumstances, are facing mental health and coping challenges. Some groups are exclusively for women and some are language-specific and designed for newcomers, whose mental health is often at risk because of the stress of migration.
We offer support for women in partnership with settlement and community agencies serving specific ethnology-cultural communities, including the Afghan, Tibetan, Hindi, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Tamil and Spanish communities. The partnering organizations offer language-specific programming facilitated by culturally competent group facilitators.
