Makin Tracks celebrates the journey in the development of the Aboriginal mental health and social and emotional wellbeing (MH&SEWB) workforce over the many years. This workforce is vital to improving the mental health and wellbeing needs of Aboriginal people in NSW.
The Forum provides an opportunity to reflect on the journey travelled and the journey ahead. This theme enables multiple MH&SEWB workforces to celebrate making a difference through individuals, families and communities alongside the benefit to the workplaces.
This event brings together Aboriginal mental health and social and emotional wellbeing workers from Aboriginal community-controlled health services, Aboriginal mental health workers in NSW public mental health services and other people who support their work.
This forum is hosted by Western NSW Local Health District in partnership with the Aboriginal Health & Medical Research Council.
The conference sub-themes are:
- Aboriginal mental health and wellbeing leadership. Reflecting on the journey towards leadership and creating sustainability for the future.
- Celebrate workforce and its contribution to services and communities in the many pathways to mental health and wellbeing.
- Discuss the many tracks leading to care and the man services providing care.
