The Primary Health Network is funding five (5) grants of $6,000 each to CALD support organisations in the Hunter New England and Central Coast areas to develop video, audio and/or printed materials to encourage local people in CALD community groups impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated social isolation to access local mental health and wellbeing support services.
Project outcomes must include:
- Identifying and working with a specific local CALD community group to design the health promotion materials
- Producing video/audio/print resources that will provide the local CALD community with culturally appropriate information to help them to identify and access mental health and wellbeing support services in their area.
These resources will provide local information which will help with general mental health issues and also issues such as isolation and social disconnection that are related to the COVID pandemic, or other natural disasters. The content of resources developed should be consistent with taking a holistic patient centered approach to mental health and wellbeing and will recognise the importance of community and connection.
The resources are to be completed before August 2021.
Grant applications will close at 5pm, March 12, 2021.
