Message of support to the Tasmanian Iranian community

Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania’s board and staff extend their solidarity and support to the people of Iran and members of our community with Iranian citizenship, who are of Iranian background, or have family and friends in the region.

The current devastating events in Iran have deeply saddened and concerned many of our staff and clients, some of whom are from Iran or who have family and friends in the region. Our thoughts are with them.

MRC Tas is committed to the principles of equality and freedom of expression. We support the people of Iran as they protest peacefully for these principles and against the violent and restrictive measures of the Iranian authorities. We extend our deepest sympathies to all those suffering.

Culturally and linguistically diverse community members who are feeling distressed or anxious can access mental health support from the Phoenix Centre. For more information please contact us on 03 6221 0999 or email |

The Phoenix Centre has developed a range of self-care tips to remind us of small things we can do to be kind to ourselves and others during uncertain times. The ‘Be kind to your mind’ resources are available in 11 different languages on the MRC Tas website:
