Kurbingui has been successful in securing the lead role in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Regional Suicide Prevention (RSP) funded by the Brisbane North Primary Health Network (PHN). The program aims to provide an emergency response and follow up care response to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community who reside in Brisbane North.

Kurbingui understands and identifies the importance of supporting the social, emotional, spiritual, and cultural wellbeing of a person within our community. Kurbingui also recognises the importance of developing connection to land, culture, spirituality, family, and community are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and how this disconnect can impact on wellbeing.
