Mental Health in Multicultural Victoria -  Roundtable 2011

The speech on mental health advocacy, given by ECCV Director - Ross Barnett, was well received at the roundtable on Mental Health in Multicultural Victoria on second December 2011.

We were pleased to provide input from the multicultural sector to this initiative of the Migrant Mental Health Taskforce of the Victorian Mental Health Reform Council. Key stakeholders met to workshop issues related to migrants and refugees. The Council will use these issues to produce a report for the Minister for Mental Health and staff from the Department of Health.

This was a timely opportunity for ECCV to influence the development of the mental health sector as national and state mental health reforms are currently underway.

Ross spoke about the expectations that Victoria's ethnic communities have of the sector. For a copy of the speech click here.

ECCV has prioritised mental health issues across aged care, health and youth policy areas in 2011. Click here for a copy of the ECCV discussion paper A Better Way - mental health & aged care, a multicultural perspective.
