Literature review of the interplay between education, employment, health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote areas: working towards an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander wellbeing framework.

Alice Springs, NT: Ninti One Limited

This literature review investigated present wellbeing frameworks at a global and local level that are relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in remote Australia. Current government frameworks gather statistical data for policy analysis and program development. Progressively more frameworks are incorporating holistic measures of health, for example, cultural health, governance, and the impacts of colonisation.

The review highlights the need to establish a wellbeing framework that considers the strengths and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people together with their worldviews, perspectives, and values. Cultural identity is vital combined with control, achievement, and inclusion at a wider level of society. Examples of successful projects are included in the review with recommendations for the development of a wellbeing framework.

Adult community mental health services: model of care.

Adelaide: South Australian Department of Health

The Adult community mental health services: model of care was developed as part of the need to review policy and advise on the redesign and improvement of South Australia's mental health system.

The model of care describes the service level principles and processes that inform, underpin, and direct the provision of community mental health services to adults aged 18-64 years across the Adelaide metropolitan health regions. The document is not Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander specific but does include information on Indigenous mental health.

The Adult community mental health services: model of care is intended for use in conjunction with the South Australian mental health and wellbeing policy 2010-2015 and may be of use as a reference for mental health workers.
