Aboriginal Elders and the arts are important in maintaining social and emotional wellbeing

Date posted: 3 June 2014

The National Rural Health Alliance released its Submission to the National Mental Health Commission on the Review of Mental Health Services and Programmes, which discusses possible ways to improve the social and emotional wellbeing of Indigenous Australians.

The submission calls for greater support and use of the expertise of Indigenous Elders in securing and maintaining the wellbeing of Indigenous young people, and also outlines evidence suggesting the social, therapeutic and economic benefits of arts in health projects.

The National Mental Health Commission is due to report to the Australian government on the Review of Mental Health Services Programmes by 30 November 2014.
