This seminar, conducted by the National Drug Research Institute, presents key findings and the research process undertaken for the Looking forward Aboriginal mental health project. The project is working with mental health and alcohol and other drugs (AOD) service providers and the local Nyoongar community living in the south-east metropolitan region of Perth (Armadale to Bentley) to effect positive system change in service provision for Nyoongar families living with mental health issues.
Thirteen organisations from the mental health and AOD service sectors have made a commitment to work constructively with a group of 15 Nyoongar Elders to change work practices to markedly improve service provision for Nyoongar families living with mental health and AOD issues in the area.
This is a positive story of engagement and new ways of working.
