Breaking the silence of Indigenous youth suicide
Posted on: Wed 6 Feb 2019
Since the beginning of the year, it’s been confirmed that eight Aboriginal young people have taken their lives.
Gerry Georgatos has spent many years researching suicide prevention and working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities grieving the loss of their youth to suicide.
He joins Small Change‘s Lisa Burns to discuss why this is an issue that cannot be ignored and what needs to be done to help vulnerable young people.
