Suicide in Indigenous communities is two times higher than the national average, with those aged 15-34 most at risk.
This project aims to determine whether an interactive app is useful in reducing suicidal ideation and psychological distress among Indigenous youth. The app is based primarily on acceptance and commitment therapy and includes activities to help people deal with distressing thoughts and emotions, to identify their values, and to make behavioural changes.
