NSW Kids and Families has developed a variety of materials under the Our Health Our Way campaign that examine the important issue of accessing health care and looking after your health as a young Aboriginal person.
The resources – which include seven short videos, amongst posters, brochures, and teacher’s notes – are for all health services or services working with Aboriginal young people. These resources are also intended to be delivered to Aboriginal young people through health promotion/education sessions run by teachers in schools.
The seven short videos are based on extensive consultation with young people and use their words as key messages. The seven videos and the brochure cover:
- When should I see a doctor?
- What can I expect when I go to a health service?
- What is good health?
- Medicare cards?
- Bulk billing?
- What is confidentiality?
- Having a baby?
