Most newcomers face emotional challenges due to the stress of the immigration and settlement process. Adjusting to a new country is stressful. Our Crisis Intervention service in Peel Region locations offers counselling to individual newcomers, couples and families faced with settlement challenges. Through individual sessions and educational workshops, newcomers will receive the support and tools needed to manage the challenges of everyday life, including how to handle stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, family conflict, trauma and other life transitions, such as parenting.
