Aboriginal mental health worker program 'working both ways'
A program to provide a cultural link between Indigenous and mental health service providers (GP's and visiting mental health professionals) who in the majority are non-Indigenous. The program started in 2002 to fund the provision of two AMHW's for eight remote community health centres in the NT. An evaluation was undertaken by Charles Darwin University.
