Contextualising social and emotional wellbeing as part of Indigenous health and healing

   

Social and emotional wellbeing is an important aspect of Indigenous health and healing. It encompasses a whole-of-life health perspective, bringing together Land, Sea, Culture, Community and the Individual in both physical and mental health. The Australian Government is currently working on the revised Social and Emotional Wellbeing Framework, a national strategic framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s mental health and social and emotional wellbeing. The framework is due to be completed by the end of this calendar year. The framework will feed into the Australian Mental Health road map. This seminar series will look at the Social and Emotional Wellbeing Framework from a community perspective, giving insight into how the concept of Social Emotional Wellbeing from an Indigenous viewpoint has influenced services provision and programs, and how these have delivered incredible results.
