Campaigns & Videos 

In 2017, the Lowitja Institute, Australia's National Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research, funded a research study called Valuing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Young Men on Youtube.  It is aimed at sharing knowledge on the strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young men and the supporting role they play, and aspire to play, in their relationships, families and communities.
Yarns Heal is a suicide prevention campaign for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy community,
#YouCanTalk is a joint national suicide prevention campaign aimed at giving people the confidence to respond to friends and family when they need help and guide them to the right support services.
Wot Na Wot Kine is an awareness campaign that encourages young people to talk to each other and to get professional help if required, when they have problems that affect their social and emotional wellbeing. We want to decrease the stigma associated with talking about these problems and positively role model ways to stay strong and well.
