Personal profile


Dr Terri Farrelly is an Adjunct Fellow in the Department of Indigenous Studies, Macquarie University, and also works as an independent research consultant.  

With a health background, she completed her doctoral studies in Aboriginal suicide, and her work in this field has been dedicated to promoting the need for Aboriginal suicidologies.  

Working as an independent research consultant on a wide variety of Aboriginal health and wellbeing topics, Terri has collaborated with numerous Australian government and non-government organisations, both Aboriginal and mainstream.  She has also worked extensively with and for many Aboriginal academics.  

As a non-Aboriginal researcher working in Aboriginal research, her focus has been on encouraging mainstream organisations to improve the cultural competence of their service delivery, and on supporting the further development of Aboriginal expertise in health and wellbeing research and development.  Terri has enjoyed a collaborative working relationship with Professor Bronwyn Carlson since 2004. 

 Her particular research interests include Aboriginal suicide prevention, help-seeking, intergenerational trauma and healing, and addressing racism through cultural competence and truth-telling.
