Abstract

National Close the Gap Day: Thursday 17 March 2016

It’s part of me. Palm Island and the people here. When people die young in the community the grief is palpable. Intergenerational trauma is not something you can just “get over”.

The biggest role for our non-Indigenous friends is to listen, to hear our stories.

Please, watch and share this video and register for National Close the Gap Day on 17 March.

Indigenous health is everybody’s business; it’s our nation’s business.

If we’re about our nation moving together and moving forward, then we have to deal with business together.
