Healing through the map

 

Overview

The Healing through the map project aimed to enhance coping and resilience, and in doing so reduce suicide risk in Aboriginal communities by providing Indigenous healthcare workers, crisis workers, and Elders with practical tools for engaging with communities experiencing mental health issues. The project involved running hands-on Map of loss workshops with health professionals on working with Aboriginal communities and families, mental health issues, and enhancing the capacity of health professionals to engage in self-care and wellbeing. Workshops have been conducted in the Great Southern, South West, and the Kimberley regions of Western Australia with much support being gained from Aboriginal communities and Elders to further expand the project across the State.
