This conference will be held on local Kaurna land.
Pangkarra ia, Kaurnaku yarta, maiyarta. Kaurna pangkarra Crystal Brookunungku kauwantila, Cape Jervisana patpangka, karnurna paintyila marrikurlu (This is Kaurna country, good country. Kaurna country extends from Crystal Brook in the north to Cape Jervis in the south and to the east of the hills).
The gap in health status between First Nations Australian, Maori and Pasifika peoples and non-Indigenous people continues to remain unacceptably wide. It has been identified as a human rights concern by United Nations committees and acknowledged as such by both Australian & New Zealand government bodies.
For change to happen we must shine a light on the key challenges in First Nations Australian, Maori and Pasifika communities and address the past and present issues contributing to inequities in mental health treatment and care.
We must stop and listen to our First Nations Australian, Maori and Pasifika peoples, and empower their solutions to ensure all individuals are living long health lives; strengthening the ability to engage in cultural practices and maintain connection or reconnect with their spirit.
It is our responsibility to genuinely and actively involve First Nations Australian, Maori and Pasifika peoples and their representative bodies in all aspects of addressing health and wellbeing needs.
Unite with community leaders at the 2022 Indigenous Wellbeing Conference to create the change you want to see.
