26 October - National Symposium on Multicultural Mental Health

Event Description

Over a quarter of a million first-generation adult Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are estimated to experience some form of mental disorder in a 12-month period, based on the findings of the National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing. A significant number of people from the multicultural communities do not seek help for their mental health problem or are reluctant to do so. Often, they miss on the suicide prevention services available either due to language or cultural barriers. This poses a high risk for the future of Australia where nearly half of Australians identify themselves as someone with a multicultural background. To precisely address this issue, the Foundation is organising a National Symposium on Multicultural Communities’ Mental Health to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing among the multicultural communities and to have a discussion on the status of support services available to them.
