We understand how important health is to you and your loved ones.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia have a higher mortality, greater rate of hospitalisation, higher burden of disease, and higher levels of trauma and grief, as well as more social disadvantage than non-Indigenous Australians.
We understand that ill health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is more than physical illness, that it also includes spiritual and emotional connection to land, family and culture. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health refers to the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community where each individual is able to achieve their full potential, thereby bringing about the total wellbeing of their community.
Moreton ATSICHS focuses on improving health and wellbeing for the whole Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in the region.
