Homelessness amongst culturally and linguistically diverse people with a mental illness : an Australian study of industry perceptions /

by Multicultural Mental Health Australia.

Publisher: Parramatta, N.S.W. Multicultural Mental Health Australia 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendices : pp. 46-71 Bibliography : pp. 72-74Summary: This report shines a light on a largely forgotten segment of our population, of whom little is known and for whom not enough is done. It represents a first step in developing our understanding of pathways to homelessness for consumers from diverse backgrounds, and a way forward to improve service delivery. One of the most important findings of this report is the need to improve data collection on culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) Australians. Inadequate data collection on this section of the population has, in all likelihood led to its exclusion or under-representation in overall homelessness statistics. This, in turn, increases the risk of a misallocation of resources and deployment of culturally unsustainable models of care.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Parris Consulting Description: iii, 188 p. : ill.Summary: This book focuses on the life of one migrant family in Melbourne who have a schizophrenic son and explores the issues they have all faced. It highlights the stages of shock, denial, alienation and ongoing grief. It describes how the family, including the son with schizophrenia, reach acceptance and how this family's resilience is central to rebuilding their lives. It celebrates the way in which Kali Paxinos, an indomitable Greek mother, has negotiated the mental health system and found a way for her and her family to live well with a mental illness, and then go on to support others. The book begins by chronicling the lives of two generations of the Paxinos family. In the first part of the book the history of this eccentric Greek family captures the hereditary aspects of mental illness and how it was managed within the family in the Greek context. This narrative also captures the wounding effects of living within a traumatised family and continues tracing the impact of this wounding on the lives of the next generation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
