Mental Health Service Provision for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds: developing a best practice framework
We want to hear from you!
You are invited to contribute to developing best practice service approaches to improving the mental health and wellbeing of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds in Australia.
MYAN is hosting a national consultation to hear directly from those working with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds about mental health issues affecting young people and how mental health services can best support the mental health and well-being of young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. This national consultation will complement focus groups recently held with young people and the sector in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
These consultations are part of a research project being conducted by the Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) in Victoria, assessing mental health services for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
This project will develop a best practice framework to support the 31 National Primary Health Network (PHN)s in commissioning effective, high quality programs aimed at improving the mental health and well-being of young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
This national consultation will explore current gaps, examples of good practice and what more can be done to address gaps/build on good practice.
