The West Australian Indigenous storybook: celebrating and sharing good news stories: the Perth & Peel edition
7th ed. Perth: Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA

The seventh edition of the Western Australian (WA) Indigenous storybook is about harmony; a concept that can be related to Australian Indigenous culture. The previous WA Indigenous storybooks have showcased many stories that demonstrate how Australian Aboriginal people live in harmony with nature and how harmony and spirituality are so closely aligned. The current edition is no different. It features a number of stories that talk about harmony and connections to land and culture. As a metropolitan focused edition, this storybook also emphasises the harmonies and connections between people and services, and highlights the importance of keeping culture strong in the city. Topics covered include:

  • tobacco use – smoking cessation
  • youth programs
  • cultural ways
  • social and emotional wellbeing
  • women’s health
  • infant health – Sudden infant death syndrome
  • healing
  • alcohol and other drugs
  • family violence
  • health promotion
  • social determinants – employment and education
  • arts and culture.
