Developed by the Australasian Centre for Rural & Remote Mental Health (ACRRHM), Deadly Thinking is a social, emotional well-being and suicide prevention program specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities.

The workshop is suitable for community members and ‘natural helpers’ who play active leadership roles in their communities.

In the context of cultural sensitivity, the one-day Deadly Thinking workshop confronts core social and emotional well-being issues in a culturally appropriate, accessible and compelling way.  

These topics include:

  • Learn/revisit the importance of yarning with family and friends
  • Raise awareness and increase understanding of risks to mental health, symptoms of anxiety and depression, drug misuse (in particular ‘Ice’), alcohol misuse and suicide risk
  • Discuss plans and pathways to help deal with social and emotional wellbeing issues for individuals, families and the community

Duration of workshop:  One day workshop
