How we can help...
The BTH Program supports BTH counsellors to provide counselling to individuals, families and communities affected by past practices regarding the forced removal of children from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families. There are 100 BTH counsellor positions nationally, situated within Aboriginal community-controlled health services that are run by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities..
BTH counsellors provide counselling to Indigenous individuals, families and communities affected by the forced removal of children. BTH counsellors have a broad clientele as they respond to the needs of those removed, those who were left behind, and the children, grandchildren and relatives of all those affected by family separation practices.
