Thank you for joining us at the second National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference, and the second World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference.

Our Indigenous communities, both nationally and internationally, share common histories and are confronted with similar issues stemming from colonisation. Strengthening our communities so that we can address high rates of suicide is one of these shared issues. The Conferences provided opportunities to network and collaborate between Indigenous people and communities, policy makers, and researchers and to share what we have learned and to collaborate on solutions that work in suicide prevention.

Sincere thanks to our conference sponsors for their support of this important event, particularly for our travel bursaries that assisted delegates to join us from many remote communities.

We invite you to view the Conference Recommendations join us for these significant Conferences to listen, learn and further empower our Indigenous communities to reduce suicide and its impact on Indigenous people.

About the Artwork.
This artwork represents our people doing business on country that is recovering from colonisation; our lands taken over, our cultures decimated, and our families separated, causing hardship, despair, and loss of hope.
