A renewed national focus: Bringing together the mental health and multicultural sectors

MHiMA Team - Friday, May 04, 2018
Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:

Mental Health Australia has joined forces with the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) and the National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) as part of an alliance to deliver a new national multicultural mental health project, announced today by Minister for Health the Hon Greg Hunt MP and funded by Australian Government.

The project will work with multicultural mental health consumers and carers to provide a renewed and much needed national focus on mental health and suicide prevention for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Working alongside such well respected organisations and colleagues in the multicultural community will be a huge advantage in delivering this new project. 

We all have a lot to learn from each other, and to unite the mental health and multicultural sectors, to work closely with CALD consumers, carers, and communities, will make a real difference to service delivery and provision.
