Australian Mosaic is a magazine of the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia (FECCA). FECCA publishes this national magazine three times a year, a plain English magazine which discusses a wide range of contemporary issues associated with multiculturalism., social justice, community harmony, and cultural and faith pluralism in Australia.

In its most recent publication, Issue 41, the magazine focuses on pathways to better mental health, exploring how barriers can be overcome, exploring reform in this area, and creating constructive solutions. Advance Diversity Services submitted an article titled ‘Mental Health Stigma – influencing help seeking behaviours in CALD communities’, which was published in this issue. The article explores the impact of stigma on help-seeking behaviours of CALD people with mental illness, their families and carers, and identifies barriers to accessing mental health services.
