The Elders' report into preventing Indigenous self-harm and youth suicide

This report considers suicide prevention among young Indigenous Australian populations from the perspective of Elders and community leaders in affected communities.

The report includes interviews with 31 Elders and community leaders living in 17 communities in northern Australia and addresses two primary questions:

  • why is self-harm and suicide happening?
  • what is the solution?

This report was produced as a part of the Culture is life campaign which is led by Indigenous Elders and promotes community driven solutions to end Indigenous self-harm and youth suicide.
