Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide in context.

Archives of Suicide Research; 10(2): 141-157

This article presents a review of the social and historical context of the dramatic increase in suicides among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males - from very low levels in the late 1980s to considerably higher levels compared with the non-Indigenous male population. The article also identifies the causal frameworks adopted in developing interventions. An explanation that draws on critical family-centered trauma is presented in pictures and text.

The national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander safety promotion strategy.

Canberra: National Public Health Partnership

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Safety Promotion Strategy has been developed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Injury Prevention Action Committee (ATSIIPAC), appointed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Working Group of the National Public Health Partnership Group. The strategy builds on and is integrated with the National injury prevention and safety promotion plan: 2004-2014. Together these documents target safety promotion and injury prevention for all Australians.

In this report the strategic requirements to improve safety and reduce the incidence and harm of injury to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are set out. The objectives of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Safety Promotion Strategy include: improving the safety of environments and building on community capacity to promote well being; supporting communities to prioritise and address safety and injury issues; and mobilising actions and resources that encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, government, and non-government sectors to work together to promote safety and prevent injury. The identified priorities for action include: social and emotional wellbeing; child and young people's safety; violence affecting families and individuals; land transport; water safety; and workplace safety.
