Mental health impacts of racial discrimination in Victorian Aboriginal communities

This research summary highlights the key findings of the Aboriginal Experiences of Racism survey undertaken in 2010-2011...

 

'........... in 2007 VicHealth published findings from a survey of 4,000 Victorians, the majority of whom supported a society that included people from different cultures. These conclusions were published in the More than Tolerance: Embracing diversity for health report.

 

Yet approximately one in 10 of those surveyed held views that were blatantly racist (e.g. ‘some groups are inferior to others’; ‘people from different ‘races’ should not marry’) and approximately one in three suggested that they did not tolerate certain ethnic differences (e.g. the belief that some groups do not fit into Australian society).

 

The Localities Embracing and Accepting Diversity (LEAD) program was undertaken to ascertain the level of racism and its impacts on the mental health of Aboriginal Australians in selected local government areas and to trial new community interventions that addressed racism.
