Anne joins the dots between the decimation of Aboriginal culture, and the alarming statistics around the impact of grief and trauma on Aboriginal people’s day-to-day lives. “Something’s got to change,” Anne says, and by this she means reintroducing cultural knowledge back into young people’s lives in a meaningful way. The relationship between mental health and cultural identity is obvious, and can only be solved by valuing and respecting cultural education.
