Description

This radio program provides information on illness identity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland. In this program a spokesperson from Kyabra Community Association describes a workshop they offer that helps people look beyond their mental illness to see themselves as more than just a set of symptoms. The radio program runs for 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

When to use this resource

The information in this radio program would help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have a mental illness to think of themselves as more than a person with a mental illness. People who have a family member or friend with a mental illness would also benefit from listening to this program. Health workers could discuss illness identity with their clients or health service sites could download the program for clients to access.
