There are approximately 30,000 registered psychologists in Australia.
218 of those are Indigenous.
That means that, for every 4,000 Indigenous people in need of culturally aware and approriate mental health treatment, there is one registered Indigenous psychologist.
#buildanarmy refers to The Jilya Institute’s commitment to increasing the number of Indigenous psychologists in Australia. We currently support 26 incredible Indigenous psychology students and are looking to grow that number each year.
You can help us support these students by donating to The Jilya Insitute here.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible and 90% of all donations go directly to the Scholarships Program.
