Tom Calma speaks on mental health in communities

The chair of a new advisory body on Aboriginal suicide prevention says a new approach will aim to provide help for people before they consider self-harm.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Advisory Group is one of two new bodies tasked with advising Government on how to address the issues of mental health, suicide and self-harm in Aboriginal communities.

Tom Calma, former Social justice commissioner and chair of the Suicide Prevention Advisory Group says a lot of the programs have been put in place after people have attempted suicide…but that they are now developing a strategy and looking at programs which help people before they get to that point.

Mr Calma told CAAMA Radio work has to be done to develop the strength of the community… to let young people know someone cares about them and there is help available.

 He speaks to Thecla Brogan on Strong Voices.
