A mixed methods study of the impact of the recent 2019-20 bushfires on Aboriginal people’s mental health, wellbeing and resilience

  • Description
    The aim of this project is to collaboratively develop and evaluate the impact of an innovative arts-based storytelling mental health promotion intervention for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (hereafter referred to as Aboriginal people) affected by the current Australian bushfires.
