This Way Up has just launched a new suite of multilingual coping tools created to support the mental health and wellbeing of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.
These evidence-based resources aim to support people from CALD communities who are going through a hard time to cope. They provide easy steps to calm your emotions, express yourself and tackle problems. There are also a series of translated worksheets about controlled breathing, good sleep, what to do in case of an emergency, managing your mood, learning to notice the good things in life, progressive muscle relaxation and self-care.
The resources have been translated into 10 different languages including Arabic, Chinese – Traditional, Chinese – Simplified, Filipino, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese. Click here to view and download the resources.
The resources have been developed by This Way Up in collaboration with the Multicultural Health Communication Service and funded by the NSW Ministry of Health. This Way Up is a not-for-profit provider of evidence-based, online cognitive behavioural therapy programs run by clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, researchers and web technicians based at the Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression, a joint facility of St Vincent’s Hospital and the University of New South Wales.
Visit the This Way Up website to find out more about their programs.
