NSW Aboriginal mental health workers forum



The Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Office have provided funding to the Central Coast Local Health Network to host the forum. This year's theme will represent Changing the story: making the difference.

HealthInfoNet Cafe

The NSW Aboriginal mental health workers forum was a two day event that took place at the Crowne Plaza in Terrigal, NSW. Presentations and workshops reflected the forum's theme Changing the story: making a difference, and broadly focused on the following topics: supporting the workforce; models of service delivery; consumer and community participation; and early intervention.The keynote address was given by Professor Pat Dudgeon - a psychologist and research fellow at the School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Western Australia.

Belinda Urquhart from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held internet cafés on both days of the forum. Delegates were keen to hear about the social and emotional wellbeing content available on the HealthInfoNet website, with some delegates taking the opportunity to sign up to the Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing yarning place. Belinda also presented at the forum where she demonstrated the various features of the HealthInfoNet website to the delegates. The NSW Aboriginal mental health workers forum was attended by over 200 delegates.
