Smruthy contributes to the work done by Shapes and Sounds in the space of Asian-Australian Mental Health by providing consultation and program design for their culturally responsive online mental health resources and wellbeing services. She also facilitates culturally responsive peer supervision sessions for Asian Australian mental health practitioners, aligned with Shapes and Sounds' founder Asami's vision of making culturally responsive therapy accessible to everyone by ensuring our practitioners have access to spaces that support them in ways they need.  


A not-for-profit aimed at making all forms of wellbeing accessible to our communities, Soulspace has helped Unhyphen win grants and deliver our parenting program for multicultural and migrant families, Parenting Better. We have worked together delivering wellbeing workshops to Wyndham City Council, Settlement Services International, the MARG Foundation, and the RAAF Base at Point Cook in Melbourne. We often collaborate to create informational videos on social media and AusTamil TV

Multicultural Communications & Community Engagement

In 2021 Smruthy worked with the Victorian Department of Health and the Social Policy Group, creating culturally-informed resources and ensuring the Tamil community’s needs were met with culturally responsive public health practices and information. You can follow this project on Twitter @Vicvaccinetamil. Since then, she can continued to provide consultation in the area of making online resources culturally and linguistically responsive for multicultural communities. 

Bimba has collaborated with various organisations throughout 2020-21 creating resources for parenting and healthy relationships accessible to multicultural communities in diverse languages, and provided translation review and support for mental health booklets in published in Hindi.

UNOCT Youth Engagement & Empowerment Programme

In 2020, Smruthy was part of the pan-Australian Youth Engagement and Empowerment Programme organised by the United Nations Office of Counter Terrorism. This project involved facilitating brave conversations with young people in Melbourne that then directly contributed to policy and practice frameworks utilised by state and federal agencies in Australia working in the area of countering violent extremism.
