Will also added, “Past injustices endured by First Nations Peoples, including discontinuity of cultural practices, racism and inequality, has resulted in severe intergenerational trauma amongst our First Nations communities. Suicide is the leading cause of death amongst our young people. Adding to this are the unacceptably high rates of incarceration, mental illness and incompletion of nationalised education. The solution is First Nations led cultural strengthening initiatives, such as our Yarn Bark programs.”
