Culturally Safe (Mental) Health Care - Health Service & Research Consulting

Cultural safety is more than just being aware of other cultures and respecting all people. It is about creating environments where everyone can examine their own cultural identities and attitudes, and be open-minded and flexible in their attitudes towards people from cultures other than their own.

It also requires everyone to understand that their own values or practices are not always or only the best way to solve problems. This means everyone, regardless of culture, need to be treated with respect, inclusion, and transparent management and health and safety policies.

Our credentialed team has decades of experience in diverse organisations including university, public service, health services, non-government and non-profit organisations. 

Founded on this experience we provide in-depth organisational and research consulting to improve cultural safety. 

Our approach improves staff wellbeing, collaboration and productivity, and client/customer outcomes and experiences.

We are continuing to build resources in this area so please watch this space!
