Video: Yarn Up 4 Change are a group of twelve Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander young people from across Australia who are encouraging our friends and families to have a yarn about mental health issues in our communities. Our vision is to break the stigma associated with Mental Health issues and empower our communities to identify issues and seek help before it becomes an issue.

We have created a four step process to do this:

  • Break the silence: don't be afraid to speak up, and don't be afraid to support those that do
  • Know the signs: know that it's ok to speak out for help
  • Do something about it: don't wait 'till it's too late, reach out now
  • Pay it forward: i'm going to, are you?
