The counselling service has been established to support Syrian Refugees encountering difficulties with their resettlement and is available in English, French and Arabic. Long distance clients are welcome to access online counselling through Skype.

With support from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), LASSA will attempt to devise mitigating strategies to assist those who have experienced forced departure and its effects; the service aims to help all eligible refugees suffering from emotional and stress disorders as well those facing adaptation and family issues to process and adopt better coping and management strategies.
