Who We Are
The Tasmanian Transcultural Mental Health Network (TTMHN) was established in 2008 and now has over 300 members statewide. TTMHN members come from a range of services, including:
- Those working directly in the area of mental health
- Those working in a range of allied services
All members have an interest in working responsively with Tasmania’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
What We Do
The TTMHN advocates for the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse communities by strengthening the cultural competency and cultural responsiveness of the mental health workforce in Tasmania. The TTMHN aims to support the mental health workforce to ensure that culturally and linguistically diverse individuals, families and communities are planned for within service delivery.
The TTMHN does this in a number of ways, including:
- Exchange ideas, information, and resources to support their work
- Hear from guest speakers to gain insight, knowledge, and expertise
- Connect with other service providers and organisations working with diverse communities.
- Support for culturally and linguistically diverse communities to reduce stigma associated with mental health and illness
