VTMH | WEBINAR | Do my spiritual beliefs matter in providing mental health care? | Tuesday 14 May 2024 | 10.30am-12noon

[Edited extract from public address]

While person-centred care models include Spirituality & Diversity Discussions, workers often feel ill-equipped to support people in these aspects 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.

In partnership with Spiritual Health Association (SHA), Victorian Transcultural Mental Health (VTMH) is pleased to offer more opportunities for mental health practitioners to identify and explore challenges when spirituality or religion comes up during encounters with consumers.

Eligibility criteria
Sessions in this series are for practitioners working in publicly funded mental health programs across Victoria. This includes staff based in clinical mental health services, community-managed services, as well as people working within mental health programs in community health and human social services. Unfortunately, these discussions are not open to students on clinical placement.
