newroutes.org/egal_ell_1" onclick="linkClick( this.href );" target="_blank" title="Related materials">Related materials provide ELL instructors with a lesson plan and worksheets that build on English language skills using concepts about mental health expressed in the film.

This project is the result of a collaborative effort between Emergency Community and Health Outreach, Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, Somali Producer Mukhtar Gaaddasaar, KFAI Fresh Air Radio, and St. Paul Neighborhood Network.

Egal Shidad is also part of a larger, national project called New Routes to Community Health, which improves the health of immigrants in the U.S. using media created by immigrants.

"Our program's 'new route' to community health runs straight through urban neighborhoods, populated by immigrants. Health and mental health concerns are an endemic part of the landscape," said Beth Mastin, national program director of New Routes. "That's why our national collaborative offers immigrant groups new tools to tell their stories and make their communities stronger."

The eight New Routes projects are each receiving $225,000 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation over three years. The media content they create is housed here and available for any community to use. The Web site also serves as a resource for research and news on the topic of immigrant community health. In addition to Egal Shidad, the other seven New Routes projects include:

Atlanta, GA - HEARMe. East African immigrants and their Atlanta neighbors collaborating to create on-air, online and on-stage productions promoting health and cultural competency within their community. Partners are Emory University, Sagal
