Help seeking by Aboriginal men who are mentally unwell: a pilot study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Mental illness is widespread among Aboriginal men in Australia. However, they do not access mental health services in proportion to their need. Although several reports implicate cultural differences of mental health services as the cause of underutilization, very little is known about help seeking by Aboriginal men who are mentally unwell. This study explores the help-seeking behaviour of Aboriginal men who are mentally unwell in a rural Victorian community.
