We are strong and proud! A tipsheet from ACATLGN

Families Week is a great time to celebrate the strengths of our communities and cultures, even in the face of adversity. In this resource ‘We are strong and proud’, Frankie Shane Merritt, a Kamilaroi man speaks about how we can pull our focus to what is working, what we enjoy and what we are doing well within our families and communities. This focus on strengths and positivity is essential in supporting parents to keep doing the best they can to support their children. Times can be tough, but we know that connected, positive communities that focus on what is going well, but also are willing to seek support when needed, provides children with the best chance to thrive.

Thank you to our partners from the Australian Child and Adolescent Trauma, Grief and Loss Network at the Australian National University for sharing this resource.
