National Multicultural Mental Health Project

This project is funded by the Australian  Government Department of Health to focus on mental health and suicide prevention for people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds in Australia.

Mental Health Australia, the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) and the National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) will work together with people from CALD backgrounds who have experienced mental health issues and their carers to achieve the aims of this national project.

The project aims to improve mental health services for people from CALD backgrounds by helping organisations and workers to better understand and respond to the needs of Australia’s CALD communities.
