The fourth National Social & Emotional Wellbeing forum is scheduled to run from October 29 to November 1. The theme for the forum is “Putting an end to cycles of negativity.”

With cases of Indigenous suicide increasing at an alarming rate, Australia urgently needs to rethink the services currently being offered and implement strategies to increase Social and Emotional Wellbeing.

Economic instability, disconnection to land, culture and identity, substance abuse and trauma are just some of the impacting factors on an individual & social and emotional wellbeing; some preventative and others unavoidable. However, with the implementation of proactive early intervention and prevention programs, individuals can be provided with the tools they need to overcome adversity.

The fourth National Indigenous Social and Emotional Wellbeing Forum provides
delegates with the opportunity to connect and collaborate with likeminded individuals
and create systems level change.

Attendees from the last event say “I thought that the conference was a success. The presenters were passionate and insightful on the direct causes and issues affecting ATSI people in their own communities. I learnt so much from all the speakers that I can take back to my organisation. I am very grateful for the experience to listen to such knowledgeable and inspiring people.”- Erin Turner, Mental Health Association of Central Australia.
