Today (September 13th) is RU OK? day, where communities around the country are encouraged to have meaningful conversations with friends.
But what about those conversations with jurisdictions around Australia? An ambassador for R U OK & mental health advocate says there those in power need to be more proactive in helping Aboriginal people recover from inter-generational trauma.
Wiradjuri Man Jake Gablonski (centre) grew up in Katherine and was part of a travelling community forum discussing mental health issues for R U OK? Day in regional & remote communities over the last few weeks.
CAAMA’s Philippe Perez spoke to Jake when he was in Tennant Creek a little bit over a week ago as part of these forums.
