If you are living with a mental illness, speaking to someone is an important step to getting stronger support.
But for First Nations people who want to speak to someone in language or find culturally appropriate information, this can be a challenge.
A new campaign from R U OK? is looking to include such resources created by First Nations people.
Torres Strait Islander Dr Vanessa Lee-Ah Mat is the chair of the RU OK Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group who provide voices of lived experience to the campaign.
Dr Lee Ah-Mat spoke to CAAMA’s Philippe Perez in the audio below.
