Enabling social supports for humanitarian migrants

Year: 2022
Australian Institute of Family Studies

Migration, especially through humanitarian means, is a challenging experience with long-term effects on families’ socio-economic circumstances, and mental health and wellbeing. In particular, many humanitarian migrants experience a loss of social connections when they are forced to move from their home countries.

New research highlights the benefits of social support in the early stages of resettlement to long-term mental health and wellbeing.

Learn how your practice can contribute to building social and community connections for recently arrived humanitarian migrants.
