Kinship-BannerAWH Mental Health Services are culturally sensitive to the needs and issues of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

Aboriginal Liaison Worker, Karin McMillan, is able to support you and your family if you are involved in, or wish to access mental health services, such as:

Child & Youth Mental Health Service

Adult Mental Health Service

Older Persons Mental Health Service

The role of the Aboriginal Liaison Worker is to provide support for Aboriginal people who have, or believe they have a mental health issue to access the appropriate mental health services.

If you are worried about your mental health or that of a family member, you can call and talk to the duty worker for assistance. If you feel uneasy in contacting the service directly, then you can phone the Aboriginal Liaison Worker who will talk to you about your concerns.

This is a confidential service; information will be only given to other people or services after discussion with you and with your consent.

However, all workers employed by a public mental health service have a "Duty of Care" and if you tell a worker you are going to harm yourself or others we are obligated to inform the appropriate people.

Assistance can be provided, if required, to attend appointments with you and your family to advocate on your behalf to ensure your cultural needs are considered.
