This manual on the social and emotional wellbeing of marginalised youth has been developed for professionals working with young people. The manual aims to reduce the risk of suicide among young marginalised people, such as those of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, refugees, or same sex attracted youths. The manual and associated training have been developed based on a holistic public health model, which addresses a range of social, emotional and environmental health factors.
