Are you a frontline mental health worker supporting immigrants and refugees in your community? Are you familiar with, or do you wish to learn more about issues related to mental health and the settlement process? If so, you are cordially invited to a virtual screening of the documentary The World is Bright (Ying Wang, 2019) followed by a public panel discussion about the film one week following the screening. This event will be co-hosted by the UBC Centre for Migration Studies (CMS)’ Community University Partnerships working group, and MOSAIC, the BC organization providing inclusive settlement and employment services for newcomers. The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will served to those attending the panel discussion in person. Registration is required. Please register below.
