Mental Health in Polish Immigrant Communities

When we leave our homeland for various reasons we often find good opportunities and a fulfilling lives abroad, but we also come across many challenges:

  • Adjusting to a new language, culture, social roles and professions

  • Isolation from friends and family

  • Identity confusion

  • Feeling a lack of belonging

All these aspects of immigration can have a negative impact on mental health.

The Polish WA Business Association will host “Mental Health in Polish Immigrant Communities” to facilitate open and honest conversations on mental health and illness and discuss what we can all do to take better care of our mental well-being and provide support for people in our community.
