Abstract: 

Considering Canadian immigration trends, the current aging of the country’s population, and access issues related to services that promote the mental health needs of older visible minority immigrants, more attention is required to understand the role of organizations that offer programs and services to this population group. Using qualitative inquiry and the PRECEDE-PROCEED model, this study aims to determine to what extent programs and services available in the Neighbourhood House sector contribute to the mental health of older visible minority immigrants as understood in the VicHealth Framework.
