Refugee Mental Health
Mental health challenges can be trying for anyone, but for those who are forced to flee their home country and take up residence in a new one, they can seem downright impossible to manage. Learn about the unique challenges that refugees face when trying to manage mental health issues in a new and unfamiliar land. Host Shannon Eliot joins Jamila Ghanm, an Iraqi refugee originally from Baghdad, and Dr. James Livingston, a psychologist and the Clinical Services Manager for Center for Survivors of Torture in San Jose.
