Indigenous scholarships announced
The Anika Foundation made funds available to support a number of bursaries for Indigenous scholars (aged between 18-30) to attend the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Conference and the World Indigenous Suicide Prevention Conference, 20th - 23rd November 2018 hosted by the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at the University of Western Australia.
The aim of the Conferences was to bring together experts, leaders and members of the national and international Indigenous community to identify culturally appropriate approaches to suicide prevention.
The theme of the Conferences, Building a Stronger Tomorrow: Connecting our Communities Through Culture, reflects the unique opportunities for Indigenous people and communities, policy makers and researchers to share learning and to collaborate on solutions that work in Indigenous suicide prevention.
The conferences attracted over 500 delegates from across Australia and the World. The Conferences were preceded by the World Indigenous Youth Cultural Exchange Day, held on 19th November 2018.
