Engagement and Partnerships

MHiMA's approach to consultation and engagement is based upon the understanding that it is a two-way process, and that there are multiple stakeholders and multiple levels to be considered.

MHiMA is committed to purposeful, collaborative, mutually respectful, and sustainable relationships. Particular attention will be given to jurisdictions with limited capacity in multicultural mental health.

MHiMA recognises that its engagement is with two key stakeholder groups:

*Multicultural sector stakeholders (CALD consumer, carers, families, communities, community leaders, multicultural sector organisations). Engagement will be supported by stigma reduction and capacity building strategies.

 *Mental Health sector stakeholders (public, private, and NGO mental health organisations, national and state and territory based). Engagement will be supported by workforce education and training strategies.

The MHiMA Project will seek to engage and establish partnerships with key mental health initiatives to facilitate culturally inclusive approaches.
