Deadly thinking workshops receive a positive response in SA

Date posted: 13 May 2014

A series of Deadly thinking workshops held in Port Augusta, South Australia have received a positive response from the community.

The aim of the workshops is to encourage Indigenous Australians to talk about issues such as depression, anxiety and suicide in the context of family, community, cultural spirituality and sense of country. The workshops also aim to bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members to discuss these issues and create understanding in the wider community.

The workshops are part of a national program model, and are run in South Australia in partnership with the Australasian Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health, the University of South Australia and Country Health SA.
