Aboriginal help-seeking behaviours on social media

  • Description
    This project aims to contribute to knowledge of formal and informal help-seeking behaviours among Indigenous Australians. Given the rapid uptake of social media by Indigenous people, this project specifically aims to investigate help-seeking behaviours online on social media. It is anticipated that the outcome of this research may directly influence formal help-sources in the development of services and programs specifically relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including health (e.g. suicide prevention), employment, housing, economic opportunities, and legal services. Another intended outcome of the project is to better understand informal help-seeking and the way Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people respond.
