Transforming Perceptions is a project of the ACT Multicultural Mental Health Network: an unincorporated volunteer group that is focused on promoting mental health and wellbeing in the Canberra region to people of multicultural backgrounds. Transforming Perceptions offers a range of viewpoints on subjects that may have direct or indirect links to social, emotional and mental well-being and aims to promote de-stigmatisation of mental illness in the community. We advocate for better provision of information, treatment and care for people with mental illness and their families from multicultural, refugee and migrant backgrounds. We provide information on where to get help in the ACT region, national and local mental health sector updates, current mental health research and where to access any resources that may be available, or how to find out more about a specific topic that may be discussed. Our show features guests who are experts in their fields working in research, clinical work, advocacy, peer support and service provision and who work in the either the community, mainstream and multicultural mental health sectors.
