Project Description

This project will initially identify the causal pathways that lead from community violence to Aboriginal children experiencing poor mental health, behavioural problems, poor health behaviours, and academic difficulties through community-wide survey methods. The project will then initiate and evaluate community management programs aimed at reducing violence and its mental health effects in Aboriginal communities in three communities in western NSW
