The Elders’ report into preventing Indigenous self-harm and youth suicide

The rate of youth suicide and self-harm in Indigenous communities across Australian is the highest in the world.  This was not always the case.  It was almost non-existent 30 years ago.  This report contains interviews with Elders (including Elders from Queensland communities), and recommends a new approach that reconnects young Indigenous people to their culture.
