Evaluation of the Bringing them home and Indigenous mental health programs
It would be beneficial to undertake further research on:
- The trans-generational impacts of Stolen Generations experiences, and how these are similar to or different from the impacts on first generation members. This research should be used to inform practice by BTH Counsellors.
- The various groups of clients of the Link-Up and BTH Programs, and their needs in relation to the programs. For example, as well as the specific needs of first and subsequent Stolen Generations members, more needs to be known about the needs of families and communities from whom children were removed, both in terms of the impacts of the removal and their capacity to cope with the return of lost members.
