: Lowitja Institute is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisation working for the health and wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples through high impact quality research, knowledge translation, and by supporting a new generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health researchers. Established in January 2010, the Lowitja Institute operates on key principles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership, a broader understanding of health that incorporates wellbeing, and the need for the work to have a clear and positive impact. The Institute hosts the Lowitja Institute Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health CRC (Lowitja Institute CRC) which is funded by the Australian Government Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Programme.
The projects I was involved in really complemented each other, and my learning very well. They seemed perfectly tailored to me - not only did I use most of the subjects/skills learned in my recent degree, but working on the mental health commission project helped give me a better understanding of the field I am returning to.Ruby Warber, Lowitja
