Summary: Evaluation of a three-year pilot Chinese Mental Health Advocacy and Support Project with the aim to improve access to health care services for Chinese people with mental health needs and to improve the experiences of Chinese people with mental health needs using health care services. Key recommendation was that a culturally and linguistically-responsive befriending and support service should be set up to tackle social isolation among Chinese people with mental illness and to assist with welfare needs.
