The Family Business: improving the understanding and treatment of post traumatic stress disorder among incarcerated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

Melbourne: beyondblue

This report presents the findings from the Family wellbeing research program. The research examined post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait women in custody, the extend of PTSD among this population and its impact on the women's mental health and wellbeing. Recommendations for the identification and treatment of PTSD in custodial settings are also presented.

Factors contributing to PTSD for this group of women, included in this report, were:

  • trauma
  • suicide
  • culture
  • transition into community.

The report was produced by the Queensland Forensic Mental Health Service with funding from beyondblue.
