AIFS – Virtual approaches to support wellbeing in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people often experience barriers to seeking help. These include a lack of culturally appropriate services and geographical remoteness.
Online and digital approaches that are community-led can address some of these barriers and support the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.
This webinar will feature three Aboriginal presenters that will share their expertise in innovative, Aboriginal-led, online and/or digital programs including: Baby Coming You Ready?, WellMob First Nations , SMS4DeadlyDads and the Stay Strong AIMhi for Youth App.
This webinar will discuss:
- How Aboriginal-led online and digital programs can help address barriers to accessing health services.
- Examples of culturally safe, online and digital approaches to supporting children and families.
- Practice tips and insights for using online and digital approaches to remote service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
This webinar is recommended for practitioners and service providers who provide support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.
This webinar was co-produced by CFCA, as part of AIFS, and Emerging Minds as part of a series focusing on child mental health. CFCA and Emerging Minds are working together as part of the Emerging Minds: National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health, which is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health under the National Support for Child and Youth Mental Health Program.
