Framework for Mental Health in Multicultural Australia: Towards culturally inclusive service delivery

Welcome!

The Framework for Mental Health in Multicultural Australia (the Framework) is a free, nationally available, online resource.

It has been developed to support Australian mental health services, practitioners, Primary Health Networks and others to work effectively in a multicultural context.

The Framework allows organisations and individual practitioners to evaluate and enhance their cultural responsiveness, with access to a range of support and resources.

It is mapped against national standards to help organisations meet their existing requirements.

Everything you need to know about getting started is available in the guides below. We encourage you to take a look at these guides before registering to enter the modules and self-reflection tools.
