Engaging CALD Communities Online Forum: invitation to participate


Are you working in the area of mental health providing services or support to people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds?

beyondblue and MHiMA are pleased to invite you to participate in an online forum which will take place in April 2013. This forum has been developed as a space to explore issues related to engaging people from CALD backgrounds to reduce the impact of mental health issues. The forum will also provide opportunities for information sharing and collective learning across a range of disciplines, workplace settings and locations within Australia.

As an online forum member, you will be invited to participate in various topics relevant to engaging people from CALD backgrounds in the area of mental health. Questions will be posted and you can also add your own forum topics. Your experiences, ideas and suggestions of how to best engage people from CALD backgrounds will be useful to inform future practice for people working in mental health. It is hoped that the collective wisdom and experiences of forum members will contribute to improving the wellbeing of people from CALD backgrounds who are affected by mental health issues.
