VTMH | WEBINAR | How do I respond caringly to someone who believes they are Jesus, Mohammed or other revered sages? | Tuesday 13 June 2023 | 10.30am–12noon

[Edited extract from public address]

While person-centred care models include Spirituality & Diversity, workers often feel ill-equipped to support people in these all of their lives. 

This reflective peer group allows mental health practitioners to deepen their understanding about spiritual diversity, which can include beliefs, values, traditions and practices.
A partnership with Spiritual Health Association (SHA), Victorian Transcultural Mental Health (VTMH) offering more opportunities for mental health practitioners to identify and explore challenges when spirituality or religion comes up during encounters with consumers.

Eligibility criteria
Spirituality & Diversity Discussion Sessions in this series are for practitioners working in the Victorian publicly funded mental health sector. This includes staff working in clinical and community-managed mental health services, as well as mental health programs in community health services. Unfortunately, these discussions are not currently open to those working in private practice, NDIS providers, or students on clinical placement.
