We had:

Trevor Prior, Cultural Practice Program Coordinator of the Indigenous Health Service Division of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) talking about winning the Health and Wellbeing award at the 2021 Queensland Reconciliation Awards. RMHC North Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that supports seriously ill children and their families through practical care programs. As many as 75 per cent of families who access their programs are from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background. Within the region, many First Nations residents live in extremely remote areas, facing additional hardships in accessing health screening and treatment.

Daniella Rochford, Renown Australian Poet from Broome Western Australia talking about her poem ‘No More Shame’ and how she started her healing journey and wants to help those to start their healing journey as well. My goal here is to raise awareness for mental health, suicide prevention as well as child advocacy within the communities where child abuse is usually prevalent.
