Group Name: COSTI Immigrant Services – Learning Together Women’s Depression
Description: Meeting the needs of a diverse society since 1952, COSTI Immigrant Services is a community-based multicultural agency providing employment, educational, settlement and social services to all immigrant communities, new Canadians and individuals in need of assistance. COSTI strives to be a leader in community service by using a client focused, proactive, and innovative approach in planning, developing and delivering services. Our programs ensure that regardless of language or cultural barriers, people who arrive in Canada are able to use their existing skills, learn new ones, and participate actively in all aspects of Canadian life.
COSTI’s Learning Together Women’s Depression Group is an open psycho-educational support group offered to Italian-speaking women diagnosed with depression. Learning Together offers women support, information on symptom management, and culturally tailored interventions to cope with depression. This gives women the opportunity to develop a support network, learn coping skills and reduce their isolation. Women can be referred through their family physicians or community health providers. Self referrals are accepted. *** There is $20.00 annual fee associated with the service. Services are available to all Italian Canadian women residing in the Greater Toronto area and York Region.
