Settlement and migration can be stressful for youth (13-19). Adjusting to a new country, can present a list of challenges which if unaddressed, can lead to negative outcomes. These challenges include:
-Contact with the Criminal Justice system
-Lack of belonging
For racialized youth in particular who are struggling with their identity, these challenges can become overwhelming. At a time in which youth are most vulnerable, mental health issues due to the stress of migration can lead to additional difficulties if not addressed in a cultural sensitive manner.
