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.
Paedophile's 'snuff' sex plot revealed

A NOTORIOUS paedophile who allegedly planned to set up a "snuff camp" on his release from jail was freed on a legal technicality that left him unsupervised in the community for almost six months.
The notorious sex offender, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was released from jail after his sentence expired in its entirety on April 23 last year.
He only reappeared on the prison radar after being re-arrested in October for a raft of fraud offences in the Wollongong area of NSW.
Six months before his release, prison intelligence uncovered a set of letters being sent by the inmate to another paedophile, a former scoutmaster, located in a separate wing of Goulburn jail.
The pair had planned to set up a "snuff camp" in country NSW upon their release.
The letters outlined the names, ages and addresses of the child victims they intended to abduct - all were living around the Mudgee and Rylestone areas of NSW.
The two men had secured funding to buy a secluded, rural property to film the videos, and vehicles to assist with transport.
They discussed procedures they would undertake if police ever cottoned on to their plans.
Prior to his release, prison authorities flagged the inmate as being a danger to the public, and applied to keep him behind bars under a Continuing Detention Order (CDO).
Australian Federal Police use Operation NoEthics to conceal claims of police misconduct and intimidate a potential witness.

Mishka is a family violence advocate and potential witness in the Operation Noetics AFP investigation, where controversially, a parent and grandparent have been charged with stealing their own children.
These caregivers strongly claim that they were protecting their children from high risk family court orders, which placed these children at significant risk of harm.
Mishka alleges that the AFP are interfering with a potential witness, namely herself, involved in the AFP Operation Noetics through using Orweillian intimidatory tactics similar to those seen in the recent ABC raids. She believes that this is to hide the misconduct and gravely flawed police investigations and heavily biased wider operation which is protecting alleged perpetrators of significant child abuse.
