Throughout history, women have often found themselves compelled to leave their countries of origin, driven by a range of factors such as poverty, conflict, persecution, and other circumstances that jeopardize their safety and well-being.
Women migrants face unique vulnerabilities that stem from the stressors associated with migration, often leading to mental health distress.
This topic is often overlooked but critical: therefore, we decided to organize a webinar where we’ll delve into the unique challenges faced by immigrant women and explore strategies to support their well-being and resilience.
We aim at shedding light on their experiences, foster empathy, equip participants with practical tools to make a positive impact and contribute to creating a more inclusive and supportive society.
The webinar is directed to those who work directly with immigrant communities, are an immigrant themselves, or simply care about mental health equity.
