    Refugee Service Toolkit










    The Refugee Services Toolkit (RST) is a web-based tool designed to help service system providers understand the experience of refugee children and families, identify the needs associated with their mental health, and ensure that they are connected with the most appropriate available interventions. The mental health and general well-being of refugee children and families can be impacted by multiple factors including their experience of trauma; stressors such as resettlement, acculturation, and social isolation; and strengths they may have that could contribute to resilience. Providers can use community resources and supports to build resilience and reduce stress in refugee families.
