This poster was designed to raise awareness about dementia among Aboriginal people. To relate the effects of dementia to an Aboriginal audience, the poster uses traditional dot painting to show a snake inside the brain, whereby the snake is said to be eating away a person's memory. The poster explains the risk factors for dementia and highlights some of the signs of dementia. The poster was developed as part of the Indigenous dementia services study by a project officer involved in the study.
