All mental health clinics are available to be accessed by refugees. Health insurance covers mental health diagnosis and treatment (See Health Insurance page). Health insurance covers interpreter services. If you believe that a refugee is feeling too sad, too worried, having trouble sleeping, nightmares, has no appetite/isn’t eating, or not caring for self or family in some way, then an appointment can be made for the refugee to have an intake appointment, where the problem is discussed and appropriate services are determined. All that is needed is to call the clinic and schedule an initial (or intake) appointment. An interpreter, if needed, should be requested at this time. It is the responsibility of the clinic or provider to arrange for an interpreter but you should be sure to let them know what language is needed.
