Luke Carroll inspires youth to reduce suicide numbers

Play School presenter and Actor Luke Carroll spends his spare time promoting healthy living in remote Indigenous Australian communities that experience high rates of youth suicide.

As a father himself, he is passionate about instilling a sense of cultural identity in youth and believes that a major contributor to the increased rates of suicide is that young Indigenous people are losing touch with their culture.

Carroll visits schools in affected communities as a part of the National Indigenous 3on3 basketball and hip hop challenge, which aims to strengthen communities and boost self-esteem through sport, dancing and music.
