Participate in Research with Monash UniversityJul 31, 2023
We've recently partnered with The Culture, Trauma and Mental Health Group at Monash University to help bridge the gaps between academia and community.
Tailoring mental health interventions to acknowledge and address people's cultural identities, has been found to significantly improve treatment outcomes. However to date, there's very little evidence to assist clinicians in tailoring treatments, which contributes to poorer mental health outcomes for people of Asian identities.
Therefore, the Culture, Trauma and Mental Health Group undertake research in different Asian communities to create a stronger evidence base for culturally-responsive mental health care.
Their latest research will explore the differences between people of Western or Chinese identities in the context of mental health and trauma, and being aware of these differences can help to tailor specific treatments for different populations.
