You are invited to take part in this month's online Friday Forum.

The Land and RAMHP have partnered to get more people talking about mental health.

When: Friday, November 3, at 12pm.

Where: Right here!

The November forum will be an opportunity to have a chat about issues that can affect social and emotional well-being (SEWB).

This month’s forum is rescheduled from the July NAIDOC forum, which will look at how social and emotional well-being encompasses all aspects of health and well-being (physical and mental) while also drawing on the importance on culture, connection to land, and connection to community in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

There is a diverse panel, made up of Aboriginal leaders in health and community, ready to answer questions about”

  • social, cultural and historical factors that impact SEWB;
  • how culture can shape behaviour and influence help-seeking;
  • how mental health and mental illness are described in Indigenous communities;
  • what support services and help are available;
  • what factors help improve health and well-being; and
  • awareness and comfortability in starting a conversation.

You can ask questions on the day or submit them ahead of time.

Stewart McMinn will be part of this month's panel. Mr McMinn is a cultural man whose heritage comes from the Dharug and Waka Waka people.
