Abstract: In the Kimberley region of northern-Western Australia, suicide is an issue which not only deeply impacts upon many communities but also requires prevention initiatives appropriate to its unique cultures and place. Alive & Kicking Goals! (AKG) is a community-based and community-driven grass-roots suicide awareness and prevention program. One of AKG's strengths is its Peer Educators - young Aboriginal men and women who run workshops grounded in their own positively-framed and local DVD.
