Review: Premier resource providing a forum for national information exchange to improve the social and mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The site advocates health promotion and harm reduction services and campaigns, including an excellent alcohol and other drugs initiative, a tobacco prevention program for pregnant mothers, access to mental health and substance abuse research and access to policies and strategies under 'Protective & risk factors'. A good site for professionals whether they are providing exclusively indigenous services or supporting indigenous patients or clients as part of a mainstream health service. The Centre is currently updating and expanding its digital platform to strengthen access to information and services.
