Call to schedule an intake or inquire about Refugee Mental Health Services:
More than 50% of the refugees arriving in the United States present with mental health problems, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Refugees' cultural perspectives on mental health and illness are
often different than ours.
Pathways understands the importance of utilizing culturally-appropriate methods when engaging with refugees, honoring cultural systems and values to foster recovery and resilience processes.
The resettlement process is difficult and stressful.
Pathways recognizes that, for refugees, almost everything is new and unknown; i.e., language, home, work, finances, social expectations. A constant feeling of not having control over one's surroundings can elicit anxiety and depression. Assisting our refugee clients in learning to navigate their new environment can lessen the potential for mental health problems.
Pathways believes that collaboration with involved family
members and professionals is essential.
Our clients’ ability to retain the skills they learn will be enhanced by others’ understanding of the objectives our clients intend to reach.
