Nick Cave Raises Awareness For Suicide Prevention In Australian Aboriginal Community


Nick Cave, by Alwin Kuchler

Australian music legend Nick Cave has thrown his support behind the campaign to raise Suicide Awareness for the Warlpiri community of Lajamanu in the Australian Tanami Desert, who are crowdfunding an indigenous suicide prevention app.

Cave has posted about the cause on his website as well as offering the following quote:

Roughly three aboriginal people a week to suicide and an indigenous person is four times more likely to take their own life than a non-indigenous person. Most indigenous suicides are children between the ages of 10 and 14.
