The National Empowerment Project (NEP) is an Aboriginal led research project that was established in 2012 which was developed and led by Professor Patricia Dudgeon. The aim of the NEP was to develop a nationally applicable program to promote cultural, social and emotional wellbeing, in an effort to reduce high rates of psychological distress, self-harm and suicide within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
The Centre is committed to building cross-sector relationships and has a collective approach to health and social care. Learn about our Partners.
