RAV Webinar Recording: Aboriginal Mental Health

$50.00 inc. GST

This pre-recorded webinar runs for 1.5 hours and can be purchased online and accessed at any time.

This webinar explores both risk factors and protective behaviours for Aboriginal Peoples experiencing mental health issues by addressing the following critical issues. This includes grief about the loss of culture, land, connection, and many more areas, often connected to the history of invasion. 

Learning outcomes 

This video will cover:

  1. Stolen Generations: The impact of the past Stolen Generations and ongoing removal of children puts a lot of mental pressure on people, especially when government departments just follow procedures.
  2. Trauma: Trauma is a huge factor in Aboriginal health and an agent for many health conditions. If unresolved, trauma can debilitate a person and be passed on to the next generation.
  3. Loss of identity and culture: When Aboriginal people are separated from their culture and identity, for example when they don’t live on their traditional homelands or don’t know where they come from, they don’t feel complete and may search for who they are.
  4. Discrimination and racism: Discrimination based on race or culture, as well as racism, can have a huge impact on any person’s mental health.

Ideal for 

Clinicians, social workers, community organisation workers, health professionals, youth workers, child and family workers and counsellors with any level of experience.
