Social, emotional, cultural and spiritual wellbeing framework project

 

Overview

This project sought to establish an evidence-based framework to operationalise social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual wellbeing (SECSWB) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It was intended that the framework would be used to inform population health practice, policy, and program development in Queensland.

Following a review of the evidence, three main directions were identified for promoting the SECSWB of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland. They included:

This report aims to inform policy, program development and practice regarding key directions for the development of a social, emotional, cultural and spiritual wellbeing framework relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians in Queensland. The report provides a rationale for focusing on social, emotional, cultural and spiritual wellbeing (SESWB) as a way to promote Indigenous health and wellbeing and reduce Indigenous disadvantage.

Three key directions for future investment are described: build evidence, enhance capacity and develop workforce. The report sets out a rationale, examples of current initiatives, and recommended actions for each key direction.
