14 Sep 2011
Description

This research report explores the impact of poor oral health on the lives of a group young Indigenous Australians.

Social and emotional well-being is an important component of overall health. In the Indigenous Australian context, risk indicators of poor social and emotional well-being include social determinants such as poor education, employment, income and housing as well as substance use, racial discrimination and cultural knowledge. This study sought to investigate associations between oral healthrelated factors and social and emotional well-being in a birth cohort of young Aboriginal adults residing in the northern region of Australia’s Northern Territory.
