In this webinar we will discuss the use of culturally appropriate digital resources for promoting the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

The use of digital mental health resources has steadily gained traction. With the advent of Covid-19, the relevance and application of digital mental health is now at the forefront of treatment options. However, for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, mainstream digital mental health platforms lack cultural appropriateness and engagement.

In this webinar we discuss the Indigenous concept of social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB), focusing on the curation of culturally appropriate digital resources. We will introduce participants to a new SEWB website, called WellMob that houses over 200 Indigenous-specific digital wellbeing resources. Through case examples, we will explore some of these resources and learn how they can be implemented into clinical practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the term 'social and emotional wellbeing' (SEWB) in an Indigenous health context
  • Identify digital SEWB resources as found on the WellMob website
  • Explain the difference between Indigenous SEWB and mainstream mental health digital resources
  • Understand the application of digital SEWB resources with Indigenous clients
