Description

This comic was created for Aboriginal young people and focuses on the relationship between marijuana and anxiety, as well as alcohol and depression.

The comic aims to raise awareness about these mental health issues among young Aboriginal people. It also includes information on the signs and symptoms of depression, how to stay strong, and where to go for help.

The script was developed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in Queensland and uses language and artwork that will appeal to young people.
