Trauma is a pervasive and complex aspect of the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and, inevitably, a part of any conversation about mental health. It operates at an individual, collective and community level, and has historical and contemporary manifestations.
This report identifies the need for further analysis of trauma-informed care, what it means for the mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and how overarching policy can be developed, and trauma-informed care training and practice can be developed and implemented.
The Centre is committed to building cross-sector relationships and has a collective approach to health and social care. Learn about our Partners.
