Series of fact sheets available.
The Department of Health and Aged Care commissioned the National Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wellbeing Research (NCATSIWR) at the Australian National University (ANU) to conduct Aboriginal-led research on the mental health and wellbeing concerns Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples might be experiencing in the lead up to the Voice to Parliament Referendum.
This research indicates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people may be experiencing extra sources of stress, including uncertainty, increased racism, re-traumatisation, as well as pressure to educate others, especially non-Indigenous Australians, about the Referendum.
ANU has published evidence-based factsheets that summarise the research findings and provide links to relevant information and supports. These factsheets have been tailored to the following audiences:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples,
- non-Indigenous people,
- service providers supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples,
- the education sector.
