About us

Aims and Objectives

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Portal for Refugees & Asylum Seekers has been created to be utilised as a first stop resource to enable mental health and social care professionals, community organisations, statutory, international and national third sector organisations and refugees and asylum seekers themselves, to easily access the wealth of information and resources, and practical tools many of which are not accessible in one place.  These resources have been produced and developed by health care practitioners, international and national organisations and academic and research bodies with experience and expert knowledge of working with refugees and asylum seekers, both in the UK and internationally.

The online portal embodies the ethos of civic engagement at the University of East London through the creation of an interdisciplinary approach aimed at bringing together staff and students from a number of UEL schools and services as well as facilitating interaction with professional bodies, NGOs, charities and community organisations in East London and at national and international levels.

We welcome feedback from our service users and use them to improve our Portal.  If you have any suggestions about how we can improve our online Portal, we would like to hear from you.  In addition, there would always be new resources and information to be included e.g. new guidelines are published regularly; new or improved psychosocial interventions are researched and developed; new organisations or services may set up or existing ones may alter services they provide.

Please email us your suggestions and/or updated resources and information using the emails below and help this online Portal remain current and relevant in assisting refugees and asylum-seeking population.
