Drug and Alcohol Multicultural Education Centre (DAMEC) have just released an easy to read ten strategy factsheet on best practice approaches to working with culturally and linguistically diverse clients.
The factsheet also lists some great websites for getting multilingual resources for clients.
Included in the list of external resources is Mental Health in Multicultural Australia who also have a good Knowledge Exchange section for professional reading. They’ve outlined a framework for mental health in multicultural Australia, which they’ve spread out over an entire website. It is relatively easy to navigate, particularly if you scroll straight to the bottom of the homepage and select “I am a service manager” or “I am a worker/clinician”. Once viewing the framework outcomes you can reflect on whether you (or your service) meets the requirements of an entry, developing, or advanced standard.
