We understand the deep harm caused by the experiences of racism, colonisation, and intergenerational trauma. With respect to this, our approach is neutral, transparent, and committed.

Our goal is to empower communities to design and lead their suicide prevention initiatives. We seek and advocate for opportunities and resources so that communities can facilitate their own prevention solutions, in line with the principles of self-determination. Communities are equipped with tools and knowledge to strengthen capacity and relationships, and cultivate an environment where every person is seen and supported.

We work towards a future where a community is not defined by the trauma of suicide but by the vibrancy and strength of Culture. It's about leaving a legacy of wellness for the coming generations, ensuring they inherit a world where the traumatic impacts of suicide are mitigated by the enduring strength and wisdom of Country and Culture.
