Abstract

This book offers a high quality, comprehensive examination of issues and strategies influencing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health and social and emotional wellbeing. Drawing together culturally appropriate information on the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples it aims to educate and assist health professionals who provide services to Indigenous peoples experiencing mental health and social and emotional wellbeing issues. The content areas covered in the book include: history and contexts; issues of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health and wellbeing; mental health practice; and working with specific groups: models, programs and services. The book also contains Indigenous artwork, each of which reflect aspects of Indigenous health and wellbeing. The artwork on the front cover was provided by Nellie Green and the painting depicts the spirits and how one must trust the spirits to provide direction and support during times of great adversity. The book was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing and was developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research, the Kulunga Research Network, and the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research
