Multicultural Youth Support Group (SA)

Australia is a culturally diverse country.The population of multicultural communities, immigrants and refugees from different countries will continue to raise issues for all mental health services in the coming future. More than a quarter (28%) of the Australian population are first generation Australian born overseas. 

Illness & suicide rates appear to be consistent with their country of origin, although more research needs to be done. However, people from multicultural backgrounds may be at greater risk of experiencing mental health difficulties and suicide and face barriers to accessing services and supports. Those who do not speak English, including the most recently arrived, refugees and asylum seekers may be more vulnerable to risk factors. Traumatic experiences may have been the reason for immigration or concerned during immigration.

The aim of this group is to support attendees with their wellbeing, promote connectedness, and reduce isolation. The support group provides the participants with guidance and advice about mental health, self-care and a safe space to share their concerns and challenges.
