Cuz Congress

 

Description

Developed by the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress, Cuz Congress is an Aboriginal super hero type character developed in the 1980s to promote serious issues of good health in a light hearted way mainly through television advertising. With more and more Aboriginal youth going on line using the internet in schools and community centres throughout Australia, Congress in Alice Springs considered that it would be more culturally appropriate and efficient to consolidate a wide range of medical and mental health support services on one gateway site. Besides listing its wide range of primary health care services the site also acts as a gateway for national online and telephone services such as Lifeline, Kids Help Line, Reachout and Healthy Vibes.
