The World Federation of Public Health Associations presents the First Nations Wellbeing Statement, which shows the outcome of the World Congress on Public Health.

A World Leaders Dialogue on Suicide Prevention for First Nations people was held at the World Congress on Public Health (WCPH) in Melbourne, Australia, on April 4th, 2017. The Black Dog Institute and Australian Health Promotion Association sponsored this event. Richard Weston, the Chief Executive of Australian’s Healing Foundation, facilitated this event, which included presentations from leading global scholars and practitioners in suicide prevention. Most notably, presentations were given by Carol Hopkins, the Executive Director of the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation; Michael Naera, the Kia Piki te Ora Project Leader for Te Runanga o Ngāti Pikiao Trust; and Pat Dudgeon, a Professor at the University of Western Australia.

This paper is an outcome of World Leaders Dialogue on Suicide Prevention for First Nations people held at the 15WCPH, and is being presented to the hosts and partnering bodies of the WCPH, with the expectation that the actions are adopted into policy, and promoted by each organization.

These organizations include the World Federation of Public Health Associations.
