We partnered with the Centre of Best Practice of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention (CBPATSISP) to conduct consultations with 24 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18-27.

The aim of these consultations was to understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people’s perspectives on suicide prevention services/resources, and their lived experiences accessing these.

The young people who participated in this research project were provided with access to culturally safe wellbeing support throughout the project.

Our Partnership

The Centre of Best Practice in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention (CBPATSISP) was established in 2017 to develop and share evidence about effective suicide prevention approaches for Indigenous people and communities.

Building on the foundation of the earlier Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project (ATSISPEP), the CBPATSISP influences Indigenous suicide prevention policy, practice and research by promoting access to evidence and resources and through advocacy.

The work of the CBPATSISP is centred on the rights of Indigenous people and communities to self-determination, and the critical importance of cultural responses to distress alongside clinical approaches.
