The Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation was instrumental in creating the very first public awareness initiative regarding the extent of suicide in our communities.
We held a series of community workshops that culminated with a massive suicide summit in 2013. At this summit a delegation of ten Aboriginal people met with the Premier of Western Australia and handed him a copy of our Suicide Action Plan. This plan responds culturally to the suicide pandemic facing our people.
The article below was taken from the West Australian Newspaper about Dumbartung's Suicide Summit.
