The Mental Health Association of Central Australia would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the country on which we live and work, the Central Arrernte people, and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

We acknowledge people with a personal experience of mental illness and suicide, and the voices of lived experience informs the work that we do. As an inclusive organisation we celebrate people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, cultures, bodies and abilities.
