The Benang Program was created to meet the needs of the local Aboriginal community to help address the increasing statistics of Aboriginal youth suicide.
The aim of the program is to provide education on suicide prevention to schools and community groups and to provide information on services available to assist individuals and families dealing with mental health issues.
It is through education and providing information about suicide prevention, Benang hopes to make a difference in the Aboriginal community. We encourage individuals to talk about social and emotional issues in the hope of reducing suicide and negative mental health issues impacting upon and within our community.
Head to Health provides a place where people can access support and information before they reach crisis.
