Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Assessment

The Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre has developed an online module for mental health practitioners called Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Assessment.

Through a video case scenario, learners will be taken through the settlement experience of Sonia and her family, as well as her experience of mental health and illness.

Follow Sonia’s contact with a mental health service to have an overview of how to incorporate the Outline for Cultural Formulation into routine assessment and formulation.

We hope Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Assessment informs your practice and helps you provide culturally informed and responsive mental health care.

How can I access the module?

Queensland Health staff can access via iLearn. Once registered/signed in, search for or go directly to Cultural Considerations in Mental Health Assessment (open with Microsoft Edge, Chrome or Safari). If you are external to Queensland Health access the course following the appropriate registration path.
