Series: How do we do ‘cultural safety’ in the time of COVID-19?
Session: What we are learning
Shehani De Silva, Radhika Santhanam-Martin, Tahmineh Salehi and Susan McDonough (VTMH)
Suddenly, many things have overturned. We have arrived at a crossroad. We are isolated from one another and dependent on each other at the same time. How then do we build social solidarity and connect emotionally during this challenging time of physical distancing? Let’s talk about our concerns, draw on our strengths, struggles and experiences, and imagine the possibilities for profound positive change.
What to expect in this session? An open conversation between the facilitators and opportunities for you to participate. What are we learning about ourselves and about what really matters? What’s emerging about the ways in which communities and mental health organisations and teams are responding? How is the sector hurting or triumphing together? We want to explore, reflect, and find ways to name these collective hurts and triumphs.
VTMH webinars are open to individuals, from all disciplines and working in all sectors, who are based in Australia and interested in diversity and mental health.
THIS IS A PAST EVENT
Key concepts – Cultural safety and cultural humility – were discussed in the session. These and other frameworks are outlined in Principles guiding our work.
