National SEWB (formally BTH) Counsellors network
The National SEWB Counsellors network is network of counsellors that provides support services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people affected directly or indirectly by past government policies including the removal of children from their families. Most counsellors work within Aboriginal community-controlled health services and a majority of counsellors have both formal mental health qualifications and cultural sensitivity skills.
A list of these Aboriginal community controlled health organisations can be found on the NACCHO website.
National Link-Up Network>
Established in 1998, Link Up Services support and assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people affected by past government policies to trace their genealogy and family history and potentially reunite with their families.
