'Mental' for our community
Mental health problems are common in the community, so we are likely to have close contact with people affected. Someone who is informed about the options available for professional help can assist the person to get appropriate help. For this reason, our staff attended a 14 hour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Mental Health First Aid course last week.
Our sincere thanks to Teresa Miller (Manager of Social and Emotional Wellness Service, Richmond Wellbeing) and Rosalie Kickett (Aboriginal Health & Cultural Worker, St John of God Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Network), both proud Noongar women for sharing their wealth of knowledge.
