The Bringing them Home/Link Up Counsellors cluster describes the characteristics of the Bringing them Home (BTH) or Link Up Counsellors employed by the service provider organisation. These include the type of counsellor role held, as well as their Indigenous status, gender, full-time equivalent status, and the highest level of relevant qualification.

Bringing them Home (BTH) Counsellors provide a range of culturally appropriate counselling services to First Generation Stolen Generation members, their family and community. These services may include family counselling, grief and loss counselling, trauma counselling and group work. BTH services include basic and extensive mental health assessments, basic counselling, advocacy and support, short-term counselling for specific mental health problems, as well as individual therapy and family therapy.

Link Up Counsellors provide counselling, support and guidance to Link Up clients. The Link Up program aims to assist clients in tracing, and wherever possible, reuniting with them with family members, their communities and their culture.
