From ABC Radio Perth:
Dr Tracy Westerman was named WA’s Australian of the Year.
She is a proud Njamal woman of the Pilbara, who’s giving back to the communties she loves so much.
Tracy is a psychologist who has spent more than two decades working to reduce mental illness in Aboriginal people and better understand why some communities have such high rates of suicide.
She is teaching her people the power of self belief and says “there is nothing we can’t achieve as Aboriginal people if we believe in ourselves”.
She is talking to Geoff Hutchison on Who Are You?
