Social and Emotional Wellbeing Reference Group

Development of this web resource and the associated yarning place is guided by a national reference group. The Social and emotional wellbeing Reference Group, comprising Indigenous and non-Indigenous people working as practitioners, policy-makers and/or researchers in the area of mental health among Indigenous peoples, provides advice on:

  • content of the web resources, including the co-opting of people for expert advice;
  • priorities for future development of content areas;
  • promotion of the resource and of the HealthInfoNet's work among people and organisations involved in areas that address mental health among Indigenous peoples. This includes the development and enhancement of linkages with relevant organisations/agencies. They will also look at aspects of the associated 'yarning places' - electronic networks based on the 'community of practice' (CoP) model - in their area(s) of interest (including how to promote their use, providing contact details for potential members, etc);
  • appointment of HealthInfoNet Consultants in the area of mental health among Indigenous peoples.
