The Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) is committed to addressing the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in rural and remote communities across NSW.
Our three core areas of suicide prevention, mental health promotion and service development reflects this commitment, as does our aim to engage appropriately in research and education with Aboriginal communities.
We continue to develop competency of CRRMH staff to work in a cross-cultural context and to work with Aboriginal communities in a respectful manner.
Underpinning our work in the area of Aboriginal wellbeing is our endorsement and support of the Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Declaration, which comprises five themes on the importance of Indigenous leadership in addressing the common mental health challenges faced by Indigenous peoples around the world.
