Upcoming forum to explore multicultural perspectives on mental health and suicide

Posted on August 12, 2019

Primary Health Tasmania is supporting an upcoming forum in Launceston that will share information about best practice when working with members of Tasmania’s newly arrived community members from refugee and humanitarian entrant backgrounds.

Coming up on 6 September, the Exploring attitudes and stigma: Multicultural perspectives on mental health and suicide forum will explore attitudes and stigmas about mental health and suicide, and discuss barriers to help seeking and accessing services, and lessons from consultations over the past six months.

The event is the latest in a series of expert insight forums supported by Primary Health Tasmania as part of work on the Tasmanian component of the National Suicide Prevention Trial.
