Sydney, Australia Nepal Public Link (ANPL) is holding an event in collaboration with Western Sydney University on 28th March 2021(for Nepalese international students at – 10:15 am and for Nepalese community members and leaders at 1:30 pm) at Western Sydney University Parramatta City Campus Level 2, Corner of Smith and Macquarie Streets, Parramatta.
The aim of this consultation is to explore and understand the situation and impact of mental health issues in Nepalese community in Australia. There have been many instances where professional help and treatment of mental health issues have been rejected as a result condition became much more sever and complex which required longer term treatment. The findings of this consultation will inform and guide future program for Nepalese community.
Nepalese community leaders/members have been planning to put an event together in consultation of the resourceful institutes and experts to determine the need for and approach to further research about mental health issues in Nepali speaking community here in Australia/NSW in the pursuit of the reliable solution to the ever-growing health issues.
Mental health issues are increasingly becoming more common in recent years and often get either ignored or treatment not sought. It is important to understand the reason for lack of professional help seeking. Being migrant and emerging community, they are vulnerable as they do lack protective factors they had back home.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, limited participants will be accepted to participate in the event.
