For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, social and emotional wellbeing is a broad and holistic concept of life and health that not only includes mental health, but also other factors such as cultural, spiritual and social wellbeing. It encompasses both the wellbeing of the individual and that of their family and community (Endnote 1).
This article provides a range of information on the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, drawing on data from the 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS).
