The Roadmap Project

Defining priority health needs and actions through the empowerment and capacity development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people
The Roadmap Project
Project Status: In progress
Project administered by: SAHMRI

The Social and Emotional Wellbeing Research Program is partnering with young people to develop the first national Roadmap to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adolescent health.

This Roadmap will identify the health needs and priorities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and define evidence-based actions to address these needs.

We strongly believe that young people must be central to any effort to improve young people's health. To ensure this Roadmap is meaningful, effective and sustainable, its development will be governed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. The research team will work closely with young people, key stakeholders and experts to ensure this Roadmap captures the needs of young people and translates to meaningful real world change.

The Governance group will play a central role in the development and translation of the Roadmap, working alongside the project team and key stakeholders to ensure actions are meaningful, responsive and sustainable.

The group will include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people (from each state/territory) and be supported by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and the project team. Members of the Governance group will receive financial reimbursement for their time and have access to professional development opportunities.
