NDIS Support For Aboriginals

NDIS Support for Aboriginals in Australia

Social and Emotional Wellbeing is a strong focus of our service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as this has been identified by Aboriginal people as important for healing. We facilitate healing and empowerment using a holistic approach that includes mob, kinship, and country for healing from grief and loss. We strengthen family relationships and enhance parenting roles to restore a strong sense of self and community.

We realise there are barriers in approaching services for help because of stigmas, differences in language and protocols. We understand the importance of confidentiality due to cultural views of mental health services and know that seeking help with mental health can be perceived to be a weakness or not trusted based on beliefs held from early colonisation.
