Welcome to the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) Perinatal Mental Health Resource Portal for Health Professionals
The CaLD Perinatal Mental Health Resource Portal was compiled by the Victorian Transcultural Psychiatry Unit (VTPU) as a component of the CaLD Perinatal Project, which the VTPU managed as part of the Victorian response to the National Perinatal Depression Initiative. The CaLD Perinatal Resource Portal provides links to relevant organisations, publications and resources relating to perinatal mental health in CaLD communities for health professional/clinician’s working in the field.
