Perth, WA: Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA

The West Australian Indigenous storybook (The storybook) is the first in a series of Indigenous storybooks showcasing the achievements of Indigenous communities and people across Western Australia. The stories are from the Kimberley and Pilbara regions. The stories of programs contained within The storybook range across the areas of social, economic, health and environmental health achievements. The intention of each program was to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of Indigenous people.

The storybook shares both the successes and failures of the programs, and it is hoped that this will encourage a change in how Indigenous programs are planned, delivered and disseminated.

The storybook covers a range of programs including:

  • healthy lifestyle initiatives
  • community awareness programs relating to suicide and good parenting
  • local government environmental health and health projects
  • effective partnerships
  • social benefit programs.
