Video messages from our mob, for our mob

The team at Young Deadly Free has been busy creating new videos with communities across Australia. The videos aim to get our key messages out to young people and others in a fresh, engaging way.

We have worked with local people in all the locations we have visited. You might be surprised to know that most of the time the people you see acting haven’t had any acting experience before! The communities and the people we have met have been very welcoming and giving of their time and knowledge and we are very thankful to all those involved on and off the camera.

We hope you enjoy watching and sharing the videos with your family, friends and work colleagues. If you wish to download copies or have hard copies sent to your community, please contact us at ydsf@sahmri.com

Our videos have been organised in to a variety of suites. Access specific suites by clicking the following links or keep scrolling to view them all.

Being “Young Deadly and Free” from STIs and BBVs is important for our communities.

Everyone can do three simple things to help:

  1. #TalkaboutSTIsBBVs: Talk about STIs and BBVs with your family and friends.
  2. #UseCondoms: Use condoms and water based lubricant every time when you have sex.
  3. #GetTested: Get tested regularly (at least once a year) for STIs and BBVs. If you haven’t had a test recently, get tested today.

Everyone can do their bit…

The Syphilis outbreak in Australia has now been occurring in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities since 2011. Government, clinics, communities and individuals all have a role to play to end the outbreak. These videos showcase how some people are doing their part to help. Hopefully they give you some ideas about how you can help too.
