Lou and Nancy will be working with organisations to support the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander infants, children and families, and promote the needs of First Nations communities. They discuss what is important to them when it comes to support services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, how mental health relates to First Nations concepts of social and emotional wellbeing, and what they hope to achieve in their new roles within Emerging Minds.
