Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Resources Alert : @HealthInfoNet New #Wellmob website focuses on culturally relevant online resources to support the social and emotional #wellbeing for our mob

 ” The inspiration for the WellMob website came from frontline health and wellbeing workers, who said they needed a one-stop-shop to easily access culturally relevant resources to use with their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.

WellMob brings together over 200 videos, apps, podcasts and other websites in the one place and is free to access ” 

The new WellMob website is now available at https://wellmob.org.au/

The website was developed by eMHPrac (e-mental health in practice) in partnership with the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet.

The easy to use visual format will support those who work in mental health, family support, education and youth services.

David Edwards, a Worimi man who project managed the website for eMHPrac, said ”Input from around the country has ensured WellMob was created for and by our mob. Reference groups of Indigenous health workers were set up in Larrakia (Darwin), Kaurna (Adelaide) and Bundjalung (Lismore NSW) country.

They guided website development every step of the way”.

HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew, said of the collaboration “It has resulted in a holistic website which will support mental as well as physical, cultural and spiritual health. It will allow health and community workers to confidently share useful online resources with their clients and communities”.
