Summary

This text is written for health professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing social and emotional wellbeing issues and mental health conditions. It provides information on the issues influencing mental health, good mental health practice, and strategies for working with specific groups. Over half of the authors in this second edition are Indigenous people themselves, reflecting the growing number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experts who are writing and adding to the body of knowledge around mental health and associated areas.
