Our Team

locationWhadjuk Nyoongar Boodjar

As a cross-cultural, multidisciplinary team, we facilitate the building of Aboriginal community and Elder-led relationships with Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Support Services. We use co-design framed by Aboriginal-led participatory action research to rebalance the power held by mainstream services. Our co-design work privileges an Aboriginal worldview in order to decolonise decision making and reorient priorities such that Communities are in a position to hold services to account.

“We see a future where Aboriginal people feel confident they can access any mental health or drug and alcohol service in Western Australia knowing they will receive culturally secure and responsive care.”
