This community based mental health initiative provides assessment and support services for Indigenous people experiencing mental health problems on the Tiwi Islands of the Northern Territory. There are several objectives of this project, including:
The mental health team provides basic assessment and support services for persons with a mental health problem. Aboriginal Mental Health Workers (AMHW) act as case managers and family members have the option of acting as joint case managers. The AMHWs consult with, and take the advice from the family, and the family members provide support to the individual in care. The program's emphasis is on improving the psychosocial wellbeing of the local community.
