INTRODUCTION - Background
The Framework was developed by Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre, in consultation with the mental health and multicultural sectors.
Consultations to inform the development of the Framework were held nationally from October 2012 – July 2013. These included:
- MHiMA State and Territory Reference Group
- MHiMA Consumer and Carer Working Group
- A Survey hosted on the MHiMA website that generated 117 responses
- 14 pilot testing sites representing public and community-managed mental health services and organisations across different states and territories.
