What’s it about?
This forum will share information about best practice when working with members of Tasmania’s newly arrived community members from refugee and humanitarian entrant backgrounds. It will explore attitudes and stigmas about mental health and suicide, and discuss barriers to help seeking and accessing services, and what we’ve learned from consultations over the past six months.
Who should attend?
Suicide Prevention Trial Site working group members, human service providers, medical practitioners, front line workers, teachers, and anyone who works or volunteers with people newly arrived to Tasmania from refugee and humanitarian entrant backgrounds.
What will I learn?
• Culturally appropriate responses to people from refugee and humanitarian entrant backgrounds who are at risk of suicide
• Findings from MRC Tas recent research project
