Yarning honestly about Aboriginal mental health in NSW - Working Paper (PDF 1 MB)
The Mental Health Commission of NSW has developed a draft Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW that reflects the needs, wishes and priorities of people across the State. Listening is an essential part of the process and to that end the Commission held a series of forums with a diverse range of groups and communities across NSW. These forums were opportunities for people - young, old and in-between - to share their experiences, views and ideas for change. The things we heard were brought together into the documents listed below, which were then used to refine ideas, to generate more ideas and, ultimately, to inform the draft Plan.
