Aboriginal Community/Cultural Mentors

 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience high levels of psychological distress at a rate significantly greater than the non-Indigenous community.

The Hunter PIR Aboriginal Advisory Group proposed the development of a group of Aboriginal Mentors in recognition of this community need.

The Aboriginal Cultural Mentors will provide localised, culturally appropriate mentoring support and ongoing cultural learning for non-indigenous people who deliver services to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people and their communities.
