Trauma Informed Care

Guidelines to improve the journey of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients have been launched by Addiction and Mental Health Services. Trauma-Informed Care and Practice: A guide to working well with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will help ensure hundreds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients receive culturally-appropriate care.

The guidelines are designed to increase awareness that Indigenous Australians experience different types of trauma to the non-indigenous population.

Please view the resource below to learn more about the Trauma Informed Care approach and contact our team for a copy of the guidelines to receive the best implementation advice; and a professional case study.
