Did you know that the suicide rate within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is more than double the national rate. In 2015, suicide accounted for 5.2% of all Indigenous deaths compared to 1.8% for non-Indigenous people.
Here at Driving Oz with the Black Dog we are working with Indigenous groups to arrange for us to visit remote communities. Our plan if for us to talk to them about the suicide rates and to provide them with contact details and information that will hopefully reduce the number of suicides within their communities.
If you are part of a community that would like us to visit, please get in contact with us via email DrivingOzBlackDog@gmail.com or by calling us 0427 388 168.
