Michelle V. Porche, Ed.D. and Lisa Fortuna, M.D.; Traumatic Stress Among Resettled African Refugee Youth: Identifying Needs and Interventions in New Hampshire
Michelle V. Porche, Ed.D., and Lisa Fortuna, M.D., presented their initial findings of a needs assessment of child and adolescent refugee mental health services in New Hampshire. The pilot utilizes community dialogue strategies for integrating youth, family, provider, school and community knowledge and expertise towards addressing refugee mental health needs especially as it relates to trauma and in the context of resettlement. Youth and their families are seen at the center of this dialogue as critical informants and participants in intervention planning.
