New Project Advisory Group being formed and review of Framework commissioned

MHiMA Team - Wednesday, December 09, 2015
Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:

Our MHiMA work continues to gather pace. We are currently forming a Project Advisory Group with representation from all jurisdictions, CALD consumers and carers, and CALD views and expertise outside of the mental health sector. As part of this process, during the week we met with representatives from the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA (link is external)) and the National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA (link is external)), and the Chair of the Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Principal Committee (MHDAPC). The Advisory Group will first meet in February 2016.

As flagged in previous updates, Mental Health Australia is commissioning an independent review of the Framework for Mental Health in Multicultural Australia. The review will include an examination of the Framework’s structure, delivery and sustainability, and recommendations for future delivery and expanded implementation.
