Exhibitors

Heal Our Way is a NSW Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide prevention campaign, funded by the NSW Ministry of Health under Towards Zero Suicides and delivered by Aboriginal social change agency, Cox Inall Ridgeway.

Heal Our Way aims to encourage and empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across NSW to have safe conversations around suicide, increase community knowledge about mental health and suicide prevention, and creating awareness of suicide prevention services available locally and those who are culturally appropriate.

Throughout the campaign we also aim destigmatise and debunk myths around suicide and encourage and upskill our communities to be able to seek help. Heal Our Way was developed in collaboration with Aboriginal communities, organisatons and people with lived experience across NSW.

The Office of the Interim Victims’ Commissioner has been established to promote the rights and needs of victims of crime.

The Interim Victims’ Commissioner will engage with victims of crime, families of victims, victim support services and criminal justice agencies to hear about victims’ experience in the criminal justice system.

 

This will assist the Interim Victims’ Commissioner to:

  • raise awareness of the rights of victims of crime and the services available

  • identify, develop and provide additional accessible resources for victims of crime to understand their rights, the criminal justice process and how to access support and assistance

  • identify the training needs for government agencies to interact with victims in a trauma informed manner.

The Office of the Interim Victims’ Commissioner will also support the establishment of a permanent Victims’ Commissioner in Queensland.
