Latest update from Frank Quinlan, CEO Mental Health Australia:
We had the chance to meet with the MHiMA Project Advisory Group
this week. The group shared at disappointment that we are still
awaiting a government decision on the future of the MHiMA project, and
expressed their concerns that after the substantial input from the
MHiMA NCCCWG it was difficult to see any concrete strategies to address
CALD mental health in the consultation draft of the Fifth Plan.
The group agreed to share resources and ideas in order to ensure
that CALD issues are well articulated as part of the consultation process for
the Fifth Plan, in the hope of a final plan that takes concrete action to
address the substantial disadvantage that CALD communities face.
