It’s time to close the mental health gap
- Fri 31 Jul 2020
We are celebrating the new National Agreement on Closing the Gap which came into effect yesterday - it is the first time a National Agreement designed to improve the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has been negotiated directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives.
The Agreement commits to reducing the incarceration, domestic violence and suicide rates in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population.
The National Agreement is available on the National Indigenous Australians Agency website.
