Individuals who as children were removed from their biological families are the nation’s highest risk group to suicide. They are four times at risk than the nation’s highest population risk group to suicide; the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of the Kimberley which is the world’s second highest population risk group to suicide – behind Greenland’s Inuit peoples.
Despite all the good work done by many in saving lives, the suicide toll, particularly for the most elevated risk groups, is on the increase. The most elevated risk groups for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are individuals removed as children from their families, former inmates, the homeless and families evicted from public rental housing. When children are removed from their families because of alleged exposure to violence, dysfunction and other perceived aberrant behaviour they are not provided adequate healing and trauma informed counselling and restorative therapies.
The removal of a child from his or her family is a significant psychosocial hit, going straight to the validity of the psychosocial self and the id and simply it hurts, for many unbearably. Where there is no prospect of reunification with the parent(s) and siblings the trauma can degenerate to a constancy of traumas. One’s familial identity is made a liability and there is a disconnection with who they are and this impacts who they will be. Doubly so for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who daily have to deal with potential racism and the negative public spectacles and ceaseless conversations that diminish their historical and traditional heritage. When your identity is manifest as a liability it rips into your self-worth.

Cartel lawyers in Goulburn are quickly closing rank in an effort to stifle the smell of corruption that currently emanates from the NSW children's court.
Intimidating letters meant to threaten victims and their families into silence are still flowing from solicitors who have no idea of the incoming tsunami heading their way in epic proportions.
And so the evidence continues to pile up in favour of those who have had their families ripped apart in order to fill the pockets of those who reap the rewards whilst victims have suffered in silence for far too long.
Cartel activities are finally being exposed in Goulburn district, with irrefutable evidence that hopes to shine a light on those who traffick children under the nose of the taxpayers who honestly believe child protection is not a business.
Isn't ignorance bliss.
Newest lawyer discovered trafficking children for financial gain

Hume Legal - Joanna Jarasevic - picked up another easy score, that over a few months makes ten thousand dollars cash, and cashed right in. Unfortunately this lawyer was not working for the department at the time, and had no right to deliberately tank her clients case which ultimately ended up with the kids sent to foster care till they're eighteen. The case was simple, clear cut and the biggest point on her side, was the Emergency Order for removal of the kids was not only unlawful - it was maladministration at best and corruption at worst.
The cow should have had this case dismissed. Instead she did nothing in almost a month. Not one affidavit. All she did was collude with the department, and used her scare tactics saying "there's heaps of evidence". Our auditors concluded the complete opposite, and to tell her clients to "consent to establishment", was giving up the battle before it started. She had a fantastic opportunity to put some overreaching lazy caseworkers in place and on the spot, and to save other families the same fate she sentenced this family to. But that would have meant doing more work, and getting paid less money in the long run. As most legal aid lawyers state "they don't get paid enough money to do affidavits". For christ sake, how can parents defend themselves when their own solicitors roll over because it's more financially viable.
Regarding the allegations - there wasn't a thing that couldn't be explained and most of their [FACS] dribble was lies. So much, it would make your toes curl, believe me. Fucking dirty child trafficking mutts. NB: This mutt was given enough notice that her clients were now informed of what happens when u CONSENT TO ESTABLISHMENT. They told her No. And she lied in court and said they said yes, making docs not have to even prove one of their single reprehensible lies. They make me sick. The whole lot of them.
