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.
