About the Program

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for Indigenous Australians living in NSW compared to 17th for Non – Indigenous Australians.

Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation welcomes being a part of the NSW Governments Building on Resilience in Aboriginal Communities Initiative. This initiative is part of Towards Zero Suicides a NSW Premier’s Priority and the NSW Government Investment of $87 million over three years.

The funding was allocated to 12 Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs) across NSW. This funding will support community – led and culturally appropriate initiatives to tackle these important issues.

Tharawal AMS has entered into a service partnership with Lifeline Macarthur and Headspace Campbelltown to provide suicide prevention support and training opportunities to local Aboriginal youth, community members and Elders in the Macarthur, Wollondilly and Wingecaribee local council areas.

Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation will be working closely and have signed a joint Memorandum of Understanding with Campbelltown City Council, Wollondilly Shire Council and Wingercarribee Shire Council to provide a regional approach to suicide prevention and aftercare support. The MoU aims to strengthen support services networks and form regional working parties made up of local Aboriginal community members and people with lived experience, to inform local decision-making policy and programs around suicide prevention, suicide support services and aftercare support in the three regions providing a multi sector approach.
