We have adapted the Fred Victor (prev. CRCT) booklet, Navigating Mental Health Services in Toronto: A Guide for Newcomer Communities, to specifically address Korean Canadians living in the Greater Toronto Area. This booklet provides current information all about mental health problems – types of mental illnesses, experiences, stigma, treatment, and more. Understanding and experiencing mental health problems can be scary and difficult, and being an immigrant or newcomer to Canada can mean greater obstacles to resources and recovery. We hope this booklet with directory helps Korean Canadians know more about mental health issues as well as reduce barriers to available resources throughout the GTA.
The directory, included at the back of the booklet, is an exhaustive list of Korean-speaking mental health professionals and family doctors who can help those experiencing mental health problems and their family members.
This project was made possible by the funding from The Love Toronto Project of Mil Al Church.
