We are half way through Mental Health month, and we have been cooking up something at CMS Radio!

This month, we will be launching the Multicultural Matters- Mental Health podcast.

In each episode, our broadcasters delve into the intersections of culture and mental health, featuring insightful interviews with mental health advocates and practitioners, as well as medical professionals. Through this podcast, we hope to better understand how our communities view and respond to mental health in Canberra and the wider ACT region.

Each episode will feature one of five communities- Tamil, Urdu, Swahili, Nepali and Tongan.

We also have two special bonus episodes for you featuring an interview with Dr Elizabeth Moore, Coordinator General, Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing, and a Cross cultural panel with community broadcasters.

Together, let’s navigate the complexities, celebrate diversity, and cultivate a more compassionate understanding of mental well-being.

This podcast is developed by broadcasters from Canberra Multicultural Service FM 91.1 and is proudly supported by the Office for Mental Health and Wellbeing, ACT Government.

Stay tuned!
