Tri-Cities Wrap Around Model of Care for Mental Health in Immigrant Families

About the Project

The Tri-Cities Wrap Around Model of Care for Mental Health in Immigrant Families project aims to support the community in promoting mental health literacy by:

  • Strengthening the capacity of early years’ service providers in mental health promotion and literacy through training, tools, and knowledge exchange
  • Supporting immigrant families with a coordinated model of care that would enhance their mental health and wellbeing.

The Need

Women’s mental health postpartum has been impacted by COVID-19 because of the lack of support during and post-delivery. Immigrant women with children aged 0-6 years old express feelings of anxiety, distress and fear. The mental health impacts on women and/or parents can influence the physical, psychological and social development of young children.

Our Partners

Immigrant Families Panel: The project engages immigrant families from four language and cultural groups (Korean, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Farsi) to guide project activities. This ensures that the project supports their diverse needs. If you would like to participate, please contact

Steering Committee Members: The project also gets guidance and direction from representatives from community organizations that support families with children aged 0-6 in the Tri-Cities.

Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC): The project is monitored and evaluated by SRDC to measure the impact of project activities and identify evidence for sustainability.
