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