This program aims to enhance primary mental health services to Aboriginal people by linking the services provided by the Aboriginal mental health and mainstream sectors. The Pika Wiya health service, Pt Augusta mental health team and hospital and the Flinders and Outback regional health services are involved in the process to link services. The program aims to build the ability of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal health services to respond to the needs of Aboriginal people suffering mental illnesses all within a culturally appropriate framework.
