Ward One is a film that highlights a young Aboriginal man’s struggle with mental health. In the Aboriginal Community mental health issues are rarely talked about and often misunderstood.
Within Central Australian Aboriginal culture, a Ngangkari is a cultural doctor. They are highly revered in not only the Indigenous community but also in the Non-Indigenous community. Part of their healing practices deals with sicknesses that are unseen (mental health), focusing on the power of the mind to heal the body.
