NACCHO Youth Conference

NACCHO Youth Conference 2019 | Darwin, NT

The central focus of the NACCHO Youth Conference Healthy youth, healthy future is on building resilience. For thousands of years our Ancestors have shown great resolve thriving on this vast continent. Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, who make up 54% of our population, now look to the example set by generations past and present to navigate ever-changing and complex social and health issues.  Healthy youth, healthy future provides us with opportunities to explore and discuss issues of importance to us, our families and communities, and to take further steps toward becoming tomorrow’s leaders.

Key note speakers included:

  • Marlee Silva – Tiddas 4 Tiddas
  • Brooke Blurton – Youth Support Worker
  • Brendan Dunn – Coalition of Peaks
  • Oliver Tye – NACCHO
  • Dr Mangatjay McGregor – Royal Darwin Hospital
