Launch of NCETA’s Feeling Deadly/Working Deadly Resource Kit

April 2014

NCETA’s Feeling Deadly/Working Deadly Resource Kit aimed at reducing stress and burnout and enhancing wellbeing among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander AOD workers represents the culmination of an extensive research program by NCETA focusing on Aboriginal worker wellbeing. The Kit was launched at the APSAD Conference on Monday 25 November 2013 by Mr Steve Ella, an inaugural inductee into the National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Honour Roll. The development Kit was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. Since its launch the Kit has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from Indigenous workers and organisations across the country. More than 600 copies of the Kit have been provided to organisations and workers and a large number of organisations have also indicated that they plan to incorporate the Kit into their ongoing program of work including some Closing the Gap initiatives.
