National Symposium: Multicultural Mental Health

Mental Health Foundation Australia A significant number of people from multicultural communities do not seek help for their mental health problem or are reluctant to do so. Often, they miss on the suicide prevention services available either due to language or cultural barriers. This poses a high risk for the future of Australia where nearly half of Australians identify themselves as someone with a multicultural background. These – and similar matters – will be discussed at the National Symposium on Multicultural Mental Health, online, from 10:00 AM AEDT, Monday 26 October 2020 at 10:00am to 2:00pm.


Over a quarter of a million first-generation adult Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are estimated to experience some form of mental disorder in a 12-month period, based on the findings of the National Survey of Mental Health and Well being. With this in mind the Foundation is organizing this symposium to bring together the multicultural communities and the mental health organisations to discus the status of services available for the people who need it the most.

On Monday 26 October 2020 at 10:00am to 2:00pm
