Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have always adapted to new technologies and are finding creative ways to maintain their health and wellbeing in the digital world. There are a range of websites, apps, videos and other online resources that our health and community workforce can use with their Indigenous clients to help them stay physically and mentally well.
In this webinar, we will introduce you to a new social and emotional wellbeing website called WellMob. The WellMob website is a bank of over 200 Indigenous-specific digital resources to promote a healthy mind, body and culture.
The inspiration for the WellMob website came from our frontline workers who identified the need for a ‘one-stop-shop’ of culturally appropriate wellbeing resources. Our all-star panel of Indigenous wellbeing workers will share some online wellbeing resources and yarn about how to use with your clients and community.
- Understand how digital social and emotional wellbeing (d-SEWB) resources can play a role in keeping our mob well
- Identify how to use the new WellMob website and its d-SEWB resources with clients/ community
- Describe new Indigenous-specific digital SEWB resources
