Landmark Indigenous suicide report paves way for LGBQTI recognition

‘This is really super fantastic, it’s the first time in history this has happened.

A FEDERAL report which has revealed the shocking rate of suicide in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations has also been hailed as revolutionary for LGBTI people by Indigenous advocates.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Suicide Prevention Evaluation Project (ATSISPEP) was released today as a way to address the suicide crisis in Indigenous communities as Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley, Indigenous affairs Minister Nigel Scullion and Ken Wyatt plan to attend a roundtable with Indigenous leaders and community organisations to address the issue.
