Perth Radio covering disability issues for people from diverse backgrounds – EthnicAbility Next Week (04/07/2011) – Crime and People With Mental Illness

Message from my friend and colleague Zeliha Iscel

The Ethnic Disability Advocacy Centre (EDAC)presents
‘EthnicAbility’, a program on disability and ethnicity
Mondays From 7:30-8:00 pm (WA time) on 95.3 6EBA FM World Radio.

You can also listen live on the web at and click on
‘Listen now’.

Next week on ‘EthnicAbility’, (4th July 2011), Mike Seward, Executive
Director, Arafmi Mental Health Carers and Friends Association (WA)
Inc., will join us to discuss issues around people with mental illness
in Australia’s judicial system (WA in particular).

How does the judicial system deal with people with mental illness, particularly
those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds? What if
they also have a disability? Does a mental illness relieve a person
from prison sentence if they commit a serious crime? Get an insight
into these and other issues … next week on ‘EthnicAbility’.

We are always open to your comments and suggestions. Feel free to
call us during ‘EthnicAbility’ on 9227 5953 or any time during work
