Lead by Pro Vice Chancellor indigenous Engagement and Director Professor Jill Milroy, the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at UWA brings together the University’s expertise, programs and resources in a strong collaborative partnership focused on a central theme for Aboriginal people and communities – Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives.

The Centre aims to drive a transformative intergenerational Aboriginal health research agenda, which delivers tangible, measurable health outcomes and services directly to Aboriginal people and communities.

The Poche Centre leads The Centre of Best Practice in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention (CBPATSISP) with consortium partners that include the national Healing Foundation, the Telethon Kids Institute, sub-contractors, Health Infonet and the Menzies School of Public Health Research.

Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives has three key focus areas:

  • Culture, Wellbeing and Mental Health
  • Aboriginal Children’s Health, Disability and Developmental Outcomes for Aboriginal Children
  • Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease for Aboriginal people.
