Guest post from Canadian Paediatric Society: Caring for Kids New to Canada

Many of the 25,000 Syrian refugees who come to Canada over the coming weeks and months will be children and youth with a range of physical, emotional and mental health needs.

Caring for Kids New to Canada is an essential resource for the many health and social service professionals who will be helping to resettle Syrian families.

Developed by the Canadian Paediatric Society and a network of experts and organizations, the site has evidence-based information on assessment and screening, medical conditions, mental health, child development, and much more. It also has tools, checklists, links to local resources, and information about the Canadian health care system.

Visit www.kidsnewtocanada.ca for more information, and please share this email with your colleagues.

Also, on December 9, Caring for Kids New to Canada presents a webinar on Advocacy for Immigrant and Refugee Children featuring Dr. Paul Caulford and Dr. Meb Rashid. To register, visit the CH-Net Works website.
