Raypirri rom wellbeing program

 

Overview

The Raypirri rom wellbeing program, provided by Miwatj Health Aboriginal Corporation in the Northern Territory, helps maintain the safety and wellbeing of families and children. This program assists communities in dealing with family violence and clan conflict, self-harm, alcohol and other drug use (including petrol sniffing) through crisis intervention, early intervention and prevention.

The program uses a ‘both ways’ approach, combining mainstream processes and cultural interventions, and particularly difficult or ongoing problems are taken to Elders for guidance and advice.

Raypirri rom wellbeing program is located on the Gove Peninsula, in Yirrkala, Gunyangara, Galupa, Birritjimi and Nhulunbuy.
