2018 Mental Health and Wellbeing in CALD Communities symposium

Registrations Open!!

The NSW Local Government Multicultural Network and Penrith City Council are pleased to announce the 2018 Mental Health and Wellbeing in CALD Communities symposium is open for registrations.

The key focus of this year’s conference is breaking down the barriers CALD communities face accessing equitable and culturally aware mental health and wellbeing support.

The symposium will bring multicultural workers together to share their insights, discuss best practice, and increase their understanding of cultural nuances around mental health. We invite Local Government multicultural workers, government and non-government health services, funding bodies, community organisations, and community leaders and advocates throughout NSW to attend.

The symposium will include speakers, panel discussions and workshops, covering a range of key issues and ideas unpacking mental health and wellbeing. By bringing together representatives of front line organisations and key government departments, we can generate innovative ideas and strategies to increase services’ capacity to engage with CALD communities in a culturally sensitive way around mental health and wellbeing.

The symposium will kick off with a networking dinner at the Penrith Regional Gallery & Lewers Bequest on Tuesday 23 October from 5pm to 7pm, with the symposium program to be held at the Civic Centre in Penrith on Wednesday 24 October 2018.
