Danila Dilba has a wide range of services supporting the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of our clients. Below is an overview of all of these services and what they have to offer. Speak to your local clinic staff about how to get access to this service.
Stolen Generation Support Services
The Bringing Them Home program provides counselling to Indigenous people of the greater Darwin region, focusing on improving their social and emotional wellbeing, particularly in relation to the Stolen Generations and inter-generational impact of government policies. We run a regular meeting space where seniors from the Stolen Generation can meet up and share their stories and develop their social network, whilst engaging in therapeutic activities.
Counselling and group services
As well as clinic-based counseling services, the Social Emotional Wellbeing Seniors Group has been successful in advocating, providing safe space for seniors from the Stolen Generation to reflect and participate in therapeutic activities during group sessions.
Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drugs
This Mental Health / Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) service, provides support, advocacy and therapeutic interventions to individuals whose AOD use is affecting their mental health and wellbeing.
This program employs two therapeutic workers and two Indigenous Support Workers. This program is funded by the NT Primary Health Network (NT PHN).
Royal Commissions Support Service
The national investigation into sexual abuse of children in institutions, and the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory. It helps link people with services that can help them and their families.
This vital service works for people who until recently lacked a voice and helps to heal some of their wounds.
