National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leadership in Mental Health

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leadership in Mental Health (NATSILMH) is a core group of senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people working in the areas of social and emotional wellbeing, mental health and suicide prevention. Most are based in, or associated with, national and state mental health commissions or other nationally important mental health bodies.

NATSILMH’s aim is to help restore, maintain and promote the social and emotional wellbeing and mental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by advocating and providing advice and leadership in these areas. It also aims to reduce the high rates of suicide among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The priority work of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leadership in Mental Health is to provide advice for the mental health commissions of Australia.
