2023 Social and Emotional Wellbeing Gathering 4
Over three days, from 31 July to 2 August 2023, SEWB network members from across Australia attended the fourth Social and Emotional Wellbeing Gathering (SEWBG-4) to discuss social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. SEWB-4 was held in Garramilla (Darwin) on Larrakia Country, Northern Territory and online via Zoom.
SEWBG-4 was co-hosted by the University of Western Australia Transforming Indigenous Mental Health and Wellbeing project (TIMHWB) the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Australia (GDPSA), and the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association (AIPA), and funded by the Department of Health and Aged Care. The aim of the SEWB Gatherings is to bring together SEWB network members to showcase best practice services and programs from across the country and to discuss the future of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander SEWB policy, practice, and research. The SEWB network includes SEWB and mental health representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak bodies and Aboriginal community controlled organisations (ACCOs), academics, practitioners, policymakers, and front-line workers.
