Personal profile

Public Profile

Dr Rachel Reilly is a Health Psychologist who has been conducting collaborative research in Aboriginal health for over 15 years alongside clinical practice in a range of settings. Rachel’s early  work described psychosocial determinants of Aboriginal health in the Goulburn-Murray region of northern Victoria. This work contributed to a community-led program of work that advanced understanding of Aboriginal models of health promotion, their alignment with ecological models and a rethinking of implementation issues. The consistent underlying theme to Rachel’s work has been the exploration of links between social, emotional and physical wellbeing, and finding culturally relevant assessment and intervention approaches at individual and community levels to improve health outcomes. Rachel is currently Senior Research Fellow in the Infection and Immunity theme at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, where she is working with Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations nationally to develop prevention and treatment interventions for methamphetamine use, as well as collaborating with the Southgate Institute, Flinders University on a project seeking to understand key factors associated with Aboriginal suicide.
