Development of a framework for a reputable E-mental health information portal for CALD Australian consumers and carers - development of an e-mental health web-based portal and smartphone application that provides the option to create and store personal e-records that reflect recovery-oriented practice, which is accessible for CALD consumers.

Their aim is to develop a consumer-driven framework on mental health information.  The proposed framework will be compiled by experienced mental health professionals and will consist of 5 domains:

1. Treatment options

2. Psychosocial support

3. Management of physical health

4. Network support

5. Emerging information

They will use the information to create a web portal and smartphone application which is targeted for CALD communities, to improve their access to mental health information.
