PUBLIC TALK: Living on the Edge: Suicide in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities
|Living on the Edge: Suicide in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities
An On the Edge public lecture by Professor Pat Dudgeon, School of Indigenous Studies, UWA and Director of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project.
Suicide and mental health conditions among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are double the rate of non-Indigenous people, with the Australian Bureau of Statistics reporting over 100 deaths by suicide each year. This crisis must be addressed before it becomes any further entrenched. In order to treat mental illnesses and suicide we must also look at other challenges facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Mental health cannot be treated in isolation.
In this lecture, Professor Dudgeon will present outcomes of projects she is involved with that address Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention.
