Purro Birik - (Healthy Spirit)



4.4 Other Koori Mental Health Related Initiatives


A number of other initiatives relate to the development of mental health and social, emotional and cultural wellbeing services for Koori people. The establishment of the Victorian Regional Training Centre for Emotional and Spiritual Wellbeing, which is being managed by VACCHO and funded by the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Services (OATSIHS), will provide a community controlled training program specifically focused on social, emotional and cultural wellbeing issues.


Other community controlled initiatives (such as the VACCHO Workforce Issues Project and existing cross-cultural training programs) must also be acknowledged as playing significant roles in working towards the provision of more responsive and effective services. The Resource Unit for Indigenous Mental Health Education and Research (RUIMHER) should also be acknowledged.


It is important to highlight the complementary nature of these initiatives, given that they all have the potential to enhance the effectiveness and overall success of each other.
