The study was conducted in an Aboriginal community in NSW, Australia. The ethnographic research was titled 'The development of mental health in Koori adolescents: Stories and memories from their youth'. The themes emerged from the data and provide a deeper insight into the notion of mental health from the perspective of the Aboriginal people in this study.
