Multicultural Community Partnerships Program 2022

About the program

With a strong focus on multiculturalism, this year the Foundation is introducing Multicultural Community Partnership Program to connect and engage with Multicultural Organisations such as yours to further widen our reachto promote better mental health in the ethnic and CALD communities across Australia. 

Australia is a successful multicultural country that lets us freely express our multicultural identities, beliefs and practices, which can help us to adjust – and that bolsters our mental health. However, it is crucial that care and support services are well connected with the ethnic communities to provide culture-specific care to promote health and wellbeing in our communities.  

To facilitate the connection and to ensure the structure is in place to provide culturally sensitive mental health care, the Foundation would like to establish a community partnership with your organisation. The idea of establishing community partnerships came from our very successful Multicultural Ambassador Program of the past years. After much consideration, and from the feedback of many, we have decided that a whole community approach, compared to individual ambassadors, will have a much larger impact and ability for stigma reduction and awareness raising.  

For more information, please read the booklet given below.

If you are interested in furthering this partnership, please follow this application link:  

We invite you to consider and take up this opportunity to become a leader in multicultural mental health. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone: 03 9826 1422 or email:
