Our Voices - Stories of carers from migrant and refugee backgrounds

Email a Friend Email a Friend Share on Twitter Share on Facebook

A rare insight into the lives of carers from migrant and refugee backgrounds has been captured in a collection of beautifully crafted films.

Our Voices gathers together the stories of carers from Afghani, Egyptian, Somali, Turkish and Vietnamese communities.

The short films, produced by the Victorian Transcultural Mental Health, show the often overwhelming challenges carers face, including language barriers, stigma and cultural differences, as they seek support for their loved ones.
