Our Mob, Our Minds, Our Spirits - Indigenous Mental Health Conference

 

Overview

This annual conference is being organised by the Alma St Centre and Fremantle Research and Education Association Inc. The aim of the conference was to explore and discuss the important issue of social and emotional wellbeing in the Indigenous community. The conference was designed for Indigenous and non-Indigenous delegates to discuss mental health issues in their community, while also providing a forum for organisations to promote their programs and services.

The conference started with a welcome dinner on Monday 23 November, where Mary G provided the entertainment for the evening. The following two days conference workshops and presentations took place. Some of the presentations are available for download below.

HealthInfoNet Cafe

HealthInfoNet staff Michelle Catto, Belinda Urquhart and Ineke Krom ran a HealthInfoNet cafe on 24 November 2009, and Ineke Krom presented about how the Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing web resource can be of use to people working in this topic area.

The section of the website about substance misuse and the state specific section for Western Australia generated a lot of interest from the conference delegates, just like the Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing web resource and yarning place. Our ‘Summary of Australian Indigenous health, 2009' was also very popular among delegates.

Some of the conference presentations are available for download below.
