Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social and Emotional Wellbeing – Chapter 4
This chapter examines understandings of social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) with the aim of clarifying the relationship between SEWB, mental health and mental health disorders from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders’ perspective. The chapter begins with a brief historical overview of how the term ‘social and emotional wellbeing’ emerged as a signifier of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander concepts of health.
