Healing

Welcome to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Healing portal, an online hub for people working in healing, health, justice, education, employment, child protection, community services and family violence.

The Healing portal is designed to encourage information sharing and collaboration across sectors and locations. It brings together best practice healing initiatives and information about what is working in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities around healing. The portal includes the latest research, reports, case studies, videos and tools from around Australia to enable people to bring trauma informed and healing aware practices into their organisations and communities.

Check out The Healing Foundation’s Intergenerational Trauma Animation.

Check out The Healing Foundation video Improving the social and emotional wellbeing of First Nations children launched in 2021.

This video aims to highlight the importance of healing in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and seeks to unite the nation behind a movement for trauma recovery and healing.

Service provision including crisis support is beyond the scope of this resource. Information about crisis support services can be found here.

  • build their sense of identity and belonging
  • enrich their understanding and connection to culture
  • strengthen positive support networks across kin and community.

The program is part of the Queensland Healing Strategy developed in consultation with The Healing Foundation.
