VTMH is joining forces with the Victorian Learning Clusters to deliver introductory cultural responsiveness workshops for the mental health service workforce. This workshop is offered via the Southern Cluster.

About the workshop:

This workshop uses a diversity lens to explore contemporary approaches to recovery oriented practice in mental health settings, including working with individuals and families in their social and cultural context, and integrating social and cultural concerns into personal assessments and recovery plans.
