From 2009 to 2016, two thirds of the reported human trafficking offences in Canada took place in the province of Ontario (Ibrahim, 2018). This poses a real challenge to mental health and addiction service providers in the province, who may encounter people who have been—or are being—trafficked.
EENet’s online course will help service providers recognize and respond to the needs of human trafficking survivors. After taking the course you will be able to:
- Define human trafficking, including types and indicators
- Identify common impacts on human trafficking survivors, especially in the area of mental health and addiction
- Describe approaches that mental health and addiction service providers can use to help human trafficking survivors.
The training also includes an online community of practice, which offers the opportunity to discuss course content and other issues related to human trafficking, addiction, and mental health.
If you have questions about the course, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The development of this course was supported by Ontario’s Ministry of Health.
