MHiMA Project - consultation opportunity

MHiMA Team - Friday, January 29, 2016

Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:

Over the course of the year I have agreed with the NCCCWG that we will use this newsletter to provide periodic updates about the MHiMA project, and will do so in future updates.

In the meantime, Mental Health Australia is seeking your views on future directions for the Mental Health in Multicultural Australia (MHiMA) Project.

As you are aware, we are managing the MHiMA Project until the end of June 2016. One of our key tasks is to provide the Department of Health with recommendations for possible future directions for the Project. Your feedback will assist us to develop these recommendations, which are due in March 2016.

A consultation paper has been released for public feedback and can be found on our website. The paper presents information on the MHiMA Project, including recent Project activities and questions to assist with your feedback. 

We are seeking the views of as many people as possible, and encourage you to disseminate the consultation paper through your networks. We would especially encourage people from CALD backgrounds who are either living with or caring for someone with mental illness, or who have expertise in working with CALD populations to comment.  We also encourage anyone with an interest in multicultural mental health and wellbeing to provide feedback on this issue and the MHiMA Project.

Please send your feedback with the subject line MHiMA Project consultation to [email protected] by 12pm AEDT 12 February 2016. You can use the response form provided, or send your thoughts in an email. The questions on the response form are a guide only, if you have additional feedback you wish to provide please do so either on the form or via email. You do not need to answer all of the questions on the response form.
