This is a series of 10 factsheets that have been developed to raise awareness about different mental health issues among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

– social and emotional wellbeing
– grief, loss, and trauma
– mental health problems in our communities
– depression
– suicide
– self-harm
– anxiety disorders
– psychosis
– substance use disorders
– medication.

Each factsheet is two pages and includes a description of the mental health issue and information on where to access help.
