In this episode we revisit one of the highlights from our 2021 Summit on Girls' Education — a difficult, but timely and important, panel discussion on the topic of youth suicide, including the tragic overrepresentation of Indigenous young people and children.

Compered by award winning journalist and author Madonna King, the panel comprised:

  • Tanya Appleby, Principal of St Ursula’s College in Toowoomba, Queensland
  • Dr David Mander, psychologist and consultant with the Future Footprints program at the Association of Independent Schools Western Australia
  • Ruth Jones, National Senior Clinical Project Officer with Headspace’s Be You program
  • Alexa Towersey from mental health charity LIVIN
