Our Mob , Our Minds, Our Spirit - Mental Health Conference

 

Overview

HealthInfoNet Cafe

"Our Mob, Our Minds, Our Spirit" Conference 2010 was held at the Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle from the 4th October - 6th October. The theme for this year's conference was 'Self Care - Taking Care of YOU so you can take care of your mob'. Presentations at the Conference represented the array of knowledge and experiences of people who work within Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing.

The HealthInfoNet ran a cafe on day one and two of the conference represented by Belinda Urquhart and Alison Weston. Belinda and Alison also gave a joint presentation to conference delegates. Belinda conducted a live presentation demonstrating the features of the HealthInfoNet with a focus on the social and emotional wellbeing section. Alison presented her paper from Healing Our Spirit Worldwide on 'Development of a Yarning Place and Message Stick for Indigenous Health Workers'.

There was some keen and active interest in the HealthInfoNet from conference delegates and a few copies of the Overview of Australian Indigenous Health Status 2010 were sold.
