Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

Bladder and bowel control problems can cause much shame for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people. Despite the fact that bladder and bowel control problems can cause physical, emotional and psychological problems, it is not well understood amongst these communities or openly discussed. This lack of information and discussion often leads to isolation.

A series of resources specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are available on this site.

To obtain a hard copy of these resources, please contact National Mailing and Marketing via email to health@nationalmailing.com.au or via telephone to 02 6269 1000.

For leaflets and more information about bladder or bowel problems, product information and local continence services, please call continence advisors on the National Continence Helpline on 1800 33 00 66.
