Mental health in Aboriginal culture is about spirituality, community and connection. Aboriginal carers, or non-Aboriginal carers of Aboriginal patients, may be more comfortable talking to an Aboriginal worker.

If you would like to speak with an Aboriginal worker in the gaol or hospital, you can call:

  • The Network on 02 9700 3000
  • Telephone Information Referral Service at Community Restorative Centre on 02 9288 8700, 9am–5pm Monday to Friday.
