New mental health campaign for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander youth

Posted August 17 2021

The ‘Take a Step’ campaign encourages Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to recognise the signs that something’s not right – and provides small, practical steps towards feeling better. The resources have been developed in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members from across Australia.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples aged 24 and under are three times more likely than other young people to die by suicide.

A suite of print and online resources for young people, and for family and friends with a young person in their lives, are available. ‘Take a Step’ television and radio advertisements will broadcast nationally and in select cinemas.
