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 and family violence.

The Healing portal is designed to encourage information sharing and collaboration across sectors and locations. It brings together information about what is working in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander healing and includes examples of best practice healing initiatives, the latest research from around Australia and tools people can use to develop healing opportunities in their communities.

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

Itha Mari Aboriginal Health and Healing

The Itha Mari Aboriginal Health and Healing Group was established to address the complex access issue of Aboriginal people who were reluctant to access Kirketon Road Centre (KRC). Itha Mari, from the Barkindji language meaning ‘this way in the right direction’ was proposed by a Barkindji woman who attended the group. The Itha Mari program was created in collaboration with the Aboriginal community to build links in the local Aboriginal community and to improve access to services provided by KRC. It supports  Aboriginal clients experiencing challenges relating to their medical and psychosocial health in complex ways. Itha Mari empowers clients to participate in decision making relating to their own health and wellbeing and promotes reconnection to country and culture.
