The Aboriginal Suicide and Self-harm Help-seeking Quandary

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 32 Issue 1 (Jan/Feb 2008)

Abstract: This article highlights the rate of suicides taking place in aboriginal communities. To date there has been relatively little research conducted on Australian Aboriginal suicide and self-harm, particularly in regard to Aboriginal attitudes towards suicide and self-harm, addressing suicide and self-harm, and accessing care. The aim of the study was to investigate Aboriginal people's attitudes towards suicide and self-harm and its prevention.
