Lived experience recognition
We invite one another to recognise the children, young people and adults within families and communities with many and varied lived experiences who have come before us. We appreciate the experiences of people whose pain, trauma and heartache, including harmful systemic practices, require recognition and compassion. At Emerging Minds, we are committed to valuing the voice and expertise of lived experience.
Emerging Minds is committed to working in partnership with child and family partners and professionals across Australia. The expertise and experiences of a wide range of individuals has been vital in helping us produce content which helps you to support children’s mental health.
We would like to specifically acknowledge the generosity and wisdom of our national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consultancy group, and our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child and family partners, who have provided vital direction regarding our cultural resource development practices.
