This foundation workshop provides practitioners with a broad overview of key principles that inform culturally responsive mental health practice, and the role of culture in mental health service delivery. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on their own cultural values, beliefs and models in delivering recovery focused interventions, and explore the relationship between policy, human rights legislation, and the manner in which we provide respectful person-centred care.
Suitable for practitioners working in publicly funded mental health programs across Victoria, including staff in clinical (Area Mental Health Services) and community mental health services, as well as people working within mental health programs in community health and welfare services.
NB: This workshop replaces what was previously known as Cultural responsiveness: Introduction to principles and practices.
Registrations essential — see booking link below.
