Summary
"The National Empowerment Program is a universal strategy to promote social and emotional wellbeing and reduce community distress and suicide in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, the project builds on an Australian Research Council Indigenous Discovery Grant, Cultural Continuity and Change: Indigenous Solutions to Mental Health Issues and the Kimberley Empowerment Project, which was a response to a rise in the suicide rate within that region. Through the development of a culturally appropriate and locally responsive empowerment, healing and leadership program, the National Empowerment Project aims to restore the social and emotional wellbeing of communities by enabling communities to regain their resilience and to provide an environment which supports the recovery and healing of community members. Researchers contributing to the projec are working alongside local community consultants in Perth, Northam, Narrogin, Darwin, Kuranda, Cherbourg, Toomelah, Sydney and Mildura. The program is about empowering communities to take ownership of identifying the problems and working with them to find a solution"--Taken from About
