It’s official: Thirrili’s National Indigenous Critical Response Service (NICRS) is now truly national as the program expands into New South Wales, the ACT and Tasmania in 2019. Says Thirrili Chief Executive and NICRS Project Director Adele Cox:
“We know that our model works: the work of our advocates is really helping families who have been affected by suicide or other trauma and I’m so pleased that we can now offer our service in every corner of the country. Suicide among our people, particularly the young, is nothing less than a tragedy and we will work tirelessly to be part of the solution”.
Adele will be active over the coming months meeting key stakeholders including elected officials, Elders and community leaders, and community controlled health organisations across these ‘latest’ jurisdictions.
