Living on the edge : social and emotional wellbeing and risk and protective factors for serious psychological distress among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People /

by Kelly, Kerrie | Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association | Dudgeon, Pat | Gee, Graham | Glaskin, Belle.

Publisher: Casuarina, NT Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health discussion.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2009 Bibliography : 36-40Summary: There is more to discrimination than explicit racism and racial stereotyping. The long-standing socioeconomic inequality suffered by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is indicative of systemic and indirect discrimination ; that must be addressed. The physical and mental health impacts of this discrimination are plain to see, and contribute to the 10?17 year life expectation gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. ; To achieve equality in fact we also need to ensure that Australian social norms and standards reflect an equal value being placed on the cultures of Indigenous Australia. Within the context of government and other service ; delivery in particular, measurable standards of cultural competence?the ability to interact effectively with people from different cultures?stand to make a valuable improvement to the experience of Indigenous Australians ; (and other minority cultural, social and ethnic groups) when dealing with service providers. This discussion paper prepared by the newly founded Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association is, therefore, timely and stands to make an important contribution to efforts to understand and address the many physical and mental health impacts of discrimination as well as exploring the idea of cultural competence as it evolves.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Shedding the black coat : a story about living well with schizophrenia /

by Parris, Jill | Paxinos, Kali.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Parris Consulting Description: iii, 188 p. : ill.Summary: This book focuses on the life of one migrant family in Melbourne who have a schizophrenic son and explores the issues they have all faced. It highlights the stages of shock, denial, alienation and ongoing grief. It describes how the family, including the son with schizophrenia, reach acceptance and how this family's resilience is central to rebuilding their lives. It celebrates the way in which Kali Paxinos, an indomitable Greek mother, has negotiated the mental health system and found a way for her and her family to live well with a mental illness, and then go on to support others. The book begins by chronicling the lives of two generations of the Paxinos family. In the first part of the book the history of this eccentric Greek family captures the hereditary aspects of mental illness and how it was managed within the family in the Greek context. This narrative also captures the wounding effects of living within a traumatised family and continues tracing the impact of this wounding on the lives of the next generation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A climate of suffering : the real costs of living with inaction on climate change : Mental health and community wellbeing in the wake of extreme weather /

by Climate Institute.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Climate Institute 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report addresses a big gap in the current public debate about climate change and how we should respond to it. There has been much legitimate concern about economic consequences and the risks to property, jobs and export earnings, but there has been a failure to discuss the consequences of climate change for human wellbeing and health. This report will help us understand the 'human face' of climate change; that is, what it means for us, for our sense of security and that of our friends, our families and our neighbours. This great and complex human induced disruption to the global environment is not just 'somewhere out there'. Increasingly, climate change will weaken the environmental and social conditions that underpin our physical and psychological health.Availability: (1)

Some factors affected attitudes more than others, including level of school-based education; highest qualification level completed; whether people had single or multiple disabilities; and, to some extent, gender.Availability: (1)
