Webinar: Aboriginal Mental Health - February 2023

$50.00 inc. GST

Date: 15/02/2023

Time: 3.00pm - 4.30pm (AEDT)

This workshop will explore 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 

By the end of this workshop, participants will understand:

  • 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. 
  • rauma 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. 
  • 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 are coming from, they don’t feel complete or search for who they are.
  • Discrimination based on race or culture, as well as racism, can have a huge impact on any person’s mental health.
