The Alliance – First Nations Advisory Group
To support the implementation of the First Nations Suicide Prevention Strategy and to ensure our research directly benefits and meets the needs of the local community, the Alliance – First Nations Advisory Group was formed.
The First Nations Advisory Group – who are Traditional Owners of the lands, Elders, people with lived experience of suicide, and community controlled organisations – provide a high level of input to the First Nations research protocols to reduce suicide and improve well-being among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the Sunshine Coast and Gympie
