Health & Wellbeing of Indigenous Youth in Out-of-Home Care

Supporting the health and wellbeing of Indigenous youth in out-of-home care

This project aims to apply a strengths-based approach to identify the wellbeing of First Nations young people (aged 12–17) in out-of-home care and co-design culturally grounded programs that support and improve their wellbeing. The project is being conducted in collaboration with services that provide out-of-home care to First Nations young people across 2 Australian jurisdictions.

The project is funded by an NHMRC–CIHR Healthy Cities Implementation Science Grant and is being conducted in collaboration with our Canadian colleagues.
