Title:

Quinn et al. (2011) An evaluation of the Sanctuary Community Conversation programme to address mental health stigma with asylum seekers and refugees in Glasgow

Summary:

This report by Quinn et al (2011) evaluates the community conversations project which was set up to engage with Glasgow’s asylum seeker and refugee communities to improve understanding of mental health, increase help seeking, promote recovery and address the stigma associated with mental illness. The report presents the key findings from the project, and a discussion of the implications and recommendations which emanate from the analysis. This report reflects the increased numbers of asylum seekers and refugees in Scotland and will be of value to a wide range of parties interested in addressing the mental health needs of this vulnerable group. See also a study by Knifton (2012) which explores the beliefs, stigma and the effectiveness of national mental health campaigns for Scotland’s Pakistani, Indian and Chinese communities, and Levecque and Van Rossem (2014) which looks at how migrant mental health may potentially be affected by integration policies.
