Mental Health Literacy

Healthway Mental Health and Literacy in Young Aboriginal Men Research


In 2023, Mens Talk, in collaboration with Wadjak Northside Aboriginal Community Centre and Curtin University, embarked on a significant research project aimed at enhancing mental health literacy among young Aboriginal men. Funded by a $100,000 Healthway Research Grant, this initiative focuses on young Aboriginal males aged 14 to 24, incorporating guidance from Elder mentors. The project is unique in its approach of co-designing with the participants and Curtin researchers, ensuring that the resulting mental health literacy resources are tailored specifically for this group. These resources are intended for widespread use within the community to foster better understanding and support. Upon completion, Mens Talk will be acknowledged as key collaborators in the research paper, highlighting their role in this vital community-focused project.
