SUICIDE PREVENTION AUSTRALIA STANDS BEHIND THE ULURU STATEMENT FROM THE HEART

As the peak body representing the suicide prevention sector, Suicide Prevention Australia supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This landmark document captures the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for justice, truth telling and respect.
Suicide rates of First Nations people are unacceptably high. The Uluru Statement from the Heart aligns with our values and priorities in suicide prevention.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart, led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island elders, academics and delegates from across the nation, embraces the elements of self-determination and justice. Recognition of Indigenous peoples within the Constitution is a critical step in realising the importance of First Nations autonomy.

Our work at Suicide Prevention Australia embraces the Uluru Statement from the Heart to support justice and self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We encourage others to walk with us in an inclusive movement for a better future for all Australian people.
