Multicultural mental health

The Department of Health is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) mental health consumers, their families and carers. Most Australians will be directly or indirectly touched by the impact of mental illness at some point in their lives and for people of culturally diverse backgrounds this can involve many extra challenges.
