Karyn’s story


Content warning: This video discusses alcohol use and other sensitive issues.

Karyn wanted to support the young people in her community and provide mentoring to help them thrive.

This led to Aunty’s Place, a community-led project which provides a safe space for young people and facilitates culturally safe discussions about mental health and the impact of alcohol and other drugs.

Karyn shares why community-led projects like this are vital to support young people with disabilities such as Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
