Healing the Past by Nurturing the Future
Promoting healing and change
Healing the Past by Nurturing the Future is a community-based participatory research project.
We co-design with communities perinatal awareness, recognition, assessment and support strategies for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander parents experiencing complex trauma.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers, listeners and readers are advised that the following content may contain images and voices of people who are deceased.
If you are feeling emotional with any of the information on these pages, please speak with an Elder, family member or someone close to you. You can also contact one of your local Aboriginal service organisations or helplines.
