Mental Health Week training in Canberra

VTMH Admin - Friday, November 25, 2016

Shehani De Silva and Sue Drummond travelled to Canberra during Mental Health week to deliver training for a group of mental health practitioners and interpreters around working together in mental health settings. The training served the dual purpose of allowing mental health practitioners and interpreters to network and discuss strategies to improve working together, as well as receiving training in culturally responsive mental health practice.

The event allowed VTMH staff to listen to some of the challenges, as well as the positive experiences these practitioners have had, in working together in interpreted encounters. This information will inform the development of training and resources within the unit.
