Abstract The Australian Integrated Mental Health Initiative in the Northern Territory is one of a number of sites funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council. The project has been working with Aboriginal Mental Health Workers (AMHWs), and the Top End Division of General Practice (TEDGP) to adapt mental health information to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context through development of mental health stories. The stories focus on personal strengths and family support, and use local artwork and images, local language, metaphors and music. The concepts have been incorporated into service provider training and psychoeducation resources in the Northern Territory. Development and evaluation of mental health literacy initiatives is important in the context of high rates of mental illness and burden of disease in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Additional Notes From 2010, volumes 1-8 of the Australian e-Journal for the Advancement of Mental Health (ISSN: 1446-7984)is incorporated in Advances in Mental Health (ISSN: 1837-4905).
