Prison health re-entry program

 

Overview

The Prison health re-entry program targets Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prisoners within the Goldfields Region of Western Australia. Workers aim to provide prisoners and their partners and families (where appropriate) with a holistic 'through-care' service encompassing primary healthcare, social emotional wellbeing and alcohol and other drugs services to assist in breaking the cycle of offending.

This program is funded under the Closing the Gap priority area of Making Indigenous health everyone's business by supporting prisoners in a healthier transition from prison back in to the family and community.
