Inner Spirit

Inner Spirit

Inner Spirit
Our Inner Spirit is the centre of our being and emotions.
When our spirit feels strong our mind feels strong.
When our spirit feels tangled our mind feels tangled.
Strong Inner Spirit is what keeps people healthy and keeps them connected together.
Strong Inner Spirit keeps our family strong, our community strong and our country alive.

© Joe Roe The Aboriginal Inner Spirit Model (Ngarlu Assessment Model) was developed by Joesph 'Nipper' Roe, who belonged to the Karajarri and Yawuru people.

Alcohol and other drugs misuse continues to have a devastating effect on individuals, families and communities.

The unacceptable levels of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, lack of respect for elders, high imprisonment rates, poor educational outcomes and poor health can be directly linked to this pattern of misuse and it destroys our culture and communities.

Getting support and information

Getting support and information

If you are thinking about reducing your drug use maybe you would like some information and support. Or if you are worried about somebody and how their drug use is affecting you and your family perhaps you would like to talk to someone about your concerns.
