Education and Training

Understanding the social and cultural factors that shape and impact mental health and wellbeing is essential to delivering quality mental health care.

We deliver staff education, training and professional development in a variety of formats (face-to-face, workshops, eLearning, videoconferences, case-based modelling, guidelines, resources, individual supervision, peer supervision, mentoring, case discussions, communities of practice, practice advice) that can be tailored to meet your needs.

Our primary audience are multidisciplinary clinicians working in a variety of state-funded specialist mental health, alcohol and drug service settings. But our goal is to strengthen the capacity of the multicultural sector more broadly to provide culturally responsive mental health care.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Considering cultural factors when conducting mental health, alcohol and other drug assessments
  • Incorporating an understanding of culture when developing case formulations and treatment or recovery plans
  • Working with Interpreters in mental health settings
  • Working with bicultural workers to get specific cultural input and advice
  • Engaging with culturally and linguistically diverse individuals and their families
