"Something that I've noticed with the cut back of targeted programs is the spill into the justice system" says @AxCheryl, responding to a question on the effect of failing to properly fund health and mental health programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
She wants to see more community-led initiatives: "We have a valuable resource in our Aboriginal Community-Controlled Health Organisations. They know families they know communities. They have a great demand on their services, don't get me wrong...
They provide culturally safe services that provide services without a report going to whatever department or whatever it might be. Without anything going wrong.
We want to make sure our children, our families are safe. It's really pushed our communities over the edge. We've been
monitored and had policies applied to us It's added to our fear."
"When it comes to First Nations people there's still this argy-bargy about whos responsible. State doesn't typically invest in things for First Nations People unless there's investment from the Commonwealth."
