National Reconciliation Week is almost here
May 23, 2022
From 27 May to 3 June 2022, is National Reconciliation Week, each year, it is a time to learn about our shared histories and cultures and strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples.
This year’s Reconciliation theme is ‘Be Brave. Make Change.’ Lifeline are embracing this theme with the launch of their new support line dedicated to Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islanders. 13YARN is the first national, 24/7, free call crisis support line run by and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Newly launched, 13YARN:
- Is run fully by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
- Has been co-designed with Lifeline expertise, several Aboriginal mental health professionals and input from Torres Strait Islander, remote, regional, and urban peoples with lived experience.
- Offers a confidential, one-on-one yarning opportunity with a Lifeline-trained Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Crisis Supporter.
- Is available 24/7
