Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Australia, the new national Indigenous wellbeing, mental health and suicide prevention leadership body, today launched two additional wellbeing and mental health support posters for Indigenous Australians for staying healthy and strong during the coronavirus outbreak.
The first, Looking After Ourselves – Our Way is a contemporary expression of the social and emotional wellbeing concept with seven intersecting elements that have supported Indigenous Australians physical, mental and spiritual health for tens of thousands of years including periods of adversity, and are of equal value during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The second, How Are You Coping with Coronavirus? encourages Indigenous people to check in with themselves and others to keep their wellbeing and mental health on track during these difficult times.
The two new posters are in addition to the five ‘tips’ posters Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Australia published on 13 May, and further to the long and shorter tips material published on their website in April. The posters are designed to appeal to wide cross section of Indigenous audiences – remote and urban, and young and old alike. There will be more wellbeing support resources published by Gayaa Dhuwi (Proud Spirit) Australia over the coming months to meet the continuing challenges associated with the virus.
