Panel: Migrant and Refugee Health : Harmony Week Event - Panel discussion of health issues for migrants and refugees in WA focussing on social aspects of health. Other events...
Migrants to Australia often experience diverse health and mental health needs which may not be met by mainstream services. Addressing such needs involves understanding complex social and cultural specifics. Instead of treating people as generic bodies, a social approach to health recognises that individual and collective histories, migration stories, settlement conditions, cultural practices and social positioning affect health outcomes. Taking social perspectives into account can help us ensure inclusive health and mental healthcare. So what are the key issues? And what are the solutions?
