The Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre (QTMHC) is a statewide service which provides an information, referral, resource and clinical consultation service. Services are provided free of charge.
The QTMHC's mission is to work in partnership with mental health services, ethnic communities and other agencies to improve the quality, accessibility and appropriateness of services and promote the mental health and wellbeing of culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Queensland.
