Indigenous young people's resilience and wellbeing

  • Description
    This mixed methods cohort study resolves conceptual and definitional ambiguities around the concepts of resilience and wellbeing as they manifest in Indigenous youth. Researchers will classify factors related to, and those which predict, the development of resilience and wellbeing in Indigenous youth; quantify Indigenous youth's understanding and how they rate their resilience and wellbeing; and how this differs in the cohorts between those considered to be low risk and those considered to be high risk. Further, the study will explain how community services have an impact on youth wellbeing and resilience and how services independently and collaboratively support the development of resilience and wellbeing in Indigenous youth.

    This project was funded as part of the Discovery Indigenous Scheme.
