Newcomers & Coping with Stress During COVID-19


Even if you’re not able to attend live, register so we can send you a link to the recording the moment it’s available.

Arriving in a new country can be a time filled with excitement and new opportunities, but it can also be stressful. And at the best of times, you have to deal with a number of issues to settle successfully.

It’s reasonable to assume that most people are prepared to deal with a level of uncertainty when arriving in a new country. But the arrival of COVID-19 is something that you couldn’t have prepared for. So, how do you deal with this unexpected event?

Join our special guests:

Dr. Vivien Lee, Clinical Psychologist and Founder of the Centre for Trauma Recovery & Growth

Rizza Solis, Outreach & Community Engagement Coordinator, YMCA of Greater Toronto.

Dr. Lee will discuss helpful strategies to take back control during these uncertain times. And Rizza Solis will talk about essential services for newcomers in response to COVID-19.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
  • Common sources of stress when arriving in a new country
  • Mental health triggers in the face of COVID-19
  • Emotional responses to dealing with change
  • How to build and develop coping skills during this time
  • Settlement services and newcomer resources in response to COVID-19

This is also a great chance to ask questions about resources and services to deal with COVID-19.
Space is limited to the first 100 people so save your spot by registering today!
