The task of adapting systems to suit our ever-changing ethnic mix does not have to be overwhelming if it is approached from the perspective of finding 'fits' between existing services and systems and the needs of the emerging community.
Following our community consultation with the Australian-African community, we are thrilled to be launching a customised Mental Health First Aid training program for the women in our community to help empower them to support themselves and their loved ones. 
The session will be run by Dr. Francis Acquah from the Positive Wellness Recovery Centre. He has consulted on multiple trans-cultural projects, including the African Australian Welfare Bureau and Project Sunrise. Project Sunrise is a current initiative of the Victorian Government created to educate, support, and offer counselling to Victorian youth of African heritage and their families. He has evolved his approach to treatment over the past three decades by maintaining his steady interest in research, as shown in his recent appointment to the Board of the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses.
