Live Through This will explore intimate stories from Aboriginal People around Australia, their narrative inspires through their demonstration of strength, hope, courage and a refusal to give up and to 'live through this'. 

The online platform will further encourage other Aboriginal People to create their own content and share their own stories of resilience. It will work in conjunction with Aboriginal Medical Services (AMS), other local Aboriginal Services and youth services around Australia as an educational tool to help reduce mental health and substance abuse, to promote healthy habits and to encourage members of the Aboriginal community to seek help and beat the shame (stigma) of abuse.
