The CALD Ageing Alliance (CAASA) is happy to invite you to our first Forum for 2015. As many of you will be aware so far this year we have been focusing on Federal Government reforms to the Commonwealth Home Support Program. It is now time to start looking at other issues affecting our ageing culturally and linguistically diverse community in South Australia.
Appropriate mental health services are essential for people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background suffering mental health issues. It is time we all stopped and considered what is on offer in South Australia at present; what it is like for elderly people who do not speak English and are suffering from a mental health issue; how our services compare with the rest of Australia and what can be done to improve the system.
Please join us for this Forum and if you are aware of anyone interested in improved mental health services for CALD people please extend this invitation to them.
