Summary
Discusses history of the discipline and practice of psychology in relation to mental health of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It acknowledges history of cultural and institutionalised racism has meant that profession has been part of colonising process. Key engagements of psychology with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are outlined; these have led to Indigenous mental health movement, which heralded a significant change in thinking about mental health?and, importantly, empowerment and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at all levels of mental health service provision. The chapter concludes with some important milestones in psychology and in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health, pointing to positive ways in which psychologists can work together to bring about improved social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing for Indigenous Australians. The chapter provides an historical account of the different ways that psychology has had an impact upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: through science, practice and advocacy. It discusses how each of the three domains intersect and interrelate and the different ways in which they affect our understanding of and responses to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health
