The CALD Community Engagement Project aims to promote mental health awareness, build capacity and resilience, and decrease stigma about mental health through community engagement with members of the Rohingya community in Melbourne.
The following resources about mental health were created as part of this project through a co-design process with Community Champions from the Rohingya community in Melbourne.
The five series of videos were created to provide mental health information to the Rohingya community in a format that is accessible through audio Rohingya translations of the English resources. The resources provide information about mental health and wellbeing challenges impacting individuals and the community, including how to access support for yourself and how to support others experiencing mental health challenges.
The resources were created through a co-design process in collaboration with Community Champions from the Rohingya community, Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE), Better Place Australia (BPA), and Enliven Victoria.
The CALD Community Engagement Project has been commissioned by Mental Health Australia’s Embrace Multicultural Mental Health project with funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
