Bush medicine put to the test in WA

Date posted: 23 March 2010

In Warmun, about 200 kilometres south of Kununurra, elders are working with a psychologist on a program to combine traditional healing and conventional treatment methods to address substance use issues among the local Indigenous youth. The main strategy of the program is to reconnect youth with their culture through bush medicine, language and dance activities.
