This workshop delivered via Zoom introduces mental health practitioners to key cultural responsiveness frameworks, principles and practices.

About the workshop
This introductory workshop introduces culturally safe and responsive practice and an intersectional understanding of mental health and will assist participants to apply human rights, cultural models of health and wellbeing and participatory frameworks to mental health practice.

The workshop is designed to stimulate the interest of participants in the range of issues related to transcultural mental health and to complement broader service development initiatives being undertaken by an organisation within our current mental health and wellbeing reform environment.

The workshop will utilise a variety of facilitation modes, grounded in a reflective practice approach, to provide learners with the opportunity to explore the knowledge, skills and attitudes that support culturally safe and responsive, equitable and inclusive mental health care across a variety of service settings and contexts.

Workshop participants will also be informed of additional VTMH services including advanced skills and training workshops that are also available.
