Caber-ra Nanga Engage

Caber- ra Nanga means ‘resting the mind’, a Gaimaragal word gifted to our program by Professor Dennis Foley, Gaimaragal language speaker.

Caber-ra Nanga Engage builds capacity through the delivery of tailored Aboriginal mental health first aid training in schools, with the aim of improving mental health outcomes of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander community in our region.

This free program also offers educational resources, comprehensive service coordination and cultural advice and support facilitated through our Caber-ra Nanga Engagement Worker. Together, these components are designed to strengthen and deepen community links and build the capacity of community leaders and service providers to respond to mental health and wellness.

The Caber-ra Nanga Engage Mental Health First Aid is delivered by Ochre and Salt Pty Ltd.
