While I'm not an expert on the availability of the services for that, I would say any opportunity to expand access to health services for refugees is key. In our experience, and the experiences of our partner agencies too, learning to navigate the health system is a challenge for everyone. Certainly, when we work internationally, one of things we always look to do is find ways to integrate, where appropriate, mental health services into existing services that communities access. This is to make it more confidential, more discreet, to be able to find ways to connect with people in more accessible and safe places. I think, absolutely, it's key to offer health services and to make those as widely available as possible, inform people about them. But I would suggest as well that where appropriate, there might be opportunities to weave an awareness of what services are available and how to access them into the other essential services that many refugees need to access first or are going to go to first as a great way of connecting people with those programs.
