Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explain the development of an innovative postgraduate program in Indigenous Australian Mental Health and Well-Being for non-Indigenous health and allied health practitioners.The historical background is explored, together with details of the approach to, and the management of, the new program. The establishment of the new program has been achieved and the interest level in the new directions being undertaken has been gauged as very high. Judging by the number of enquiries, the enrolments so far achieved and the Department of Education, Science and Training granting of 20 HECS places for the new program, it is clear that the program will be viable and the future development of a Master's in Indigenous Mental Health and WellBeing is assured.
