Description

This resource focused on strong cultural identity, nutrition and education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children aged 6-12 years. Stay strong was a half-hour documentary account of the hour-long program Step by step: Indigenous kids 6-12 years, and was the fourth program in the Strong series (a set of programs on Indigenous children's health).

The program looked at some successful community-based health and education programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children which aim to build pride and resilience, encourage strong cultural identity and improve nutrition and education, to help them 'stay strong'. Stay strong was presented by Roxanne McDonald, a well-known Indigenous actor.

The Rural Health Education Foundation (RHEF) is no longer operational, and the Stay strong series has been discontinued.
