“This Community Storybook celebrates the Riverland Aboriginal Chronic Disease Support Group, and shows how Aboriginal people from the Riverland in country South Australia are taking an active part in managing their long-term illnesses in partnership with health professionals. It tells how and why the group was formed, some achievements and bene!ts to date, and several stories and tips from individual members. It also describes how the Riverland Community Health Service is involved, some related activities in the region and how this work !ts into a larger research project about chronic condition management strategies in Aboriginal communities. We hope this Community Storybook inspires and encourages Aboriginal people to take control of their health, and to live well despite their health challenges.”
