Show Notes

Jenny Baraga is a pioneer of Aboriginal mental health practice and training in Western Australia’s north west region. 

Jenny describes herself as a quiet achiever. She is a trusted voice, an experienced health practitioner and a proud Garra Yarra woman with a compelling story about the importance of taking the time to have a yarn and show cultural respect to people – especially when they are at their most vulnerable. 

During our warm table conversation Jenny also shared the legend of a painting she created some years ago which tells her family’s story of loss and pain and the legacy of being part of the stolen generation. 

As Australians we have much to listen and learn about the stories and experiences of First Nations people, so it’s a privilege to be able to amplify the knowledge and wisdom of our warm table guest Jennifer Baraga.

My Warm Table, translated into Italian is Tavola Calda. These were the words my Papa used to describe a table of good friends, good food and good conversation. I always aim to create a tavola calda in my life and I hope this podcast encourages you to do so too!
