Abstract: Mental health services across Victoria are supported to build a Cultural Portfolio Holder program, which aims to build the capacity of the mental health service system to adopt innovative approaches to diversity responsiveness. St. Vincent’s Mental Health Cultural Portfolio Holder (CPH) program reviewed the activities in acknowledgment of the urgency of cultural inclusion in mental health. Recent innovations demonstrate the capacity of the CPH program to play an important role to play to overcome the barriers and the stigma that many people of culturally, linguistically and sexually diverse communities’ experience.
