Driving holistic wellbeing and reducing the rate of suicide through connection to culture and identity

21 - 24 June 2022 | Hilton Darwin

OVERVIEW

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, health and wellbeing is viewed holistically and a sense of self includes the individual, their family, community and Country.

 

Australia’s mental health system is built on a western viewpoint, where western knowledge and methodologies are the default approach to psychological frameworks. Little recognition is given to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander worldviews, wisdom, knowledge and methods, which span more than 60,000 years and represent the resilience of the oldest living culture.

 

Third Sector’s 5th Annual National Social and Emotional Wellbeing Forum is the largest gathering for the sector and will provide attendees with practical tools and strategies to tackle the high rate of Indigenous suicide and learn how to appropriately integrate culture into practice. The forum will also support attendees to develop strategies to improve and implement service design and access, including a dedicated stream focusing on solutions for children and young people.

 

This event will also take place on our virtual platform, which has the capacity for full networking, live Q&A, 1 to 1 meetings, contact sharing, notes plus much more.The sessions will also be recorded and then available for four weeks following the event should the attendees miss any sessions and wish to watch in their own time.
