Abstract: The aim of the ‘Building Stronger Families’ segment is to provide advice to people on remote communities in Cape York, that they shouldn’t fear the stigma attached to mental health and that help is available in the form of counselling and therapy for people who are considering self-harm. This 2-minute segment was repeated on air from November 2008 for one month. This Award is in recognition of an innovative use of a down-to-earth radio message encouraging listeners to overcome stigma and seek out positive mental healthcare options.
