'Break It Down' FNQ - Desert Pea Media NQ PHN Evaluation Film

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description In 2019, the North Queensland Primary Health Network commissioned Desert Pea Media to visit five remote communities (Kuranda, Bowen, Palm Island, Thursday Island, Lockhart River) to work with some of the most disadvantaged and 'at risk' young people.

DPM's 'Break It Down' program uses 'collaborative storytelling' processes to actively engage Original Nation's young people on issues such as mental health and well-being.

We wanted to know if DPM's process actually works. Are young people stronger? Heard? Celebrated? Respected? Are they more able to live a life of their own design?

We commissioned and independent evaluation (Leanganook Yarn) to answer these questions.

This film represents our findings.
