WA funded for Indigenous mental health and parenting research

Researchers from Perth's Centre for Research Excellence in Aboriginal Health and Wellbeing have won more than $1.3 million in competitive funding for Indigenous mental health and parenting projects.

The Centre, based at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, was awarded two major grants on Tuesday under the Discovery Indigenous scheme from the Australian Research Council.

The projects are:

  • Promoting positive perinatal mental health, parenting, cultural and spiritual wellbeing, and resilience in Aboriginal parents in Western Australia
  • Cultural continuity and change: Indigenous solutions to mental health issues.

For detailed information about these projects, see links below.
