The continuing issue of social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, is one that needs to be addressed in order to raise struggling health outcomes that compromise the lives of Aboriginal people. This is underlined by the fact that suicide, in 2014, was found to be the fifth leading cause of death in Indigenous populations, as well as one of the significant factors leading to a high life expectancy gap (ATSISPEP, 2016). It was also found that compared to the non-Indigenous Australian rate of suicide, Aboriginal people were twice more likely to attempt to end their life (Department of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet, 2017), which has consequently lead to the creation of policies and recommendations

The impact of ethnic inequality has been detrimental to indigenous Australians, with the consequences of internal colonialism still affecting them today (text). Loss of language and Dreamtime stories have meant that they have had to rebuild their identity and break free from British oppression by banding together to create stronger communities. Indigenous Australians who live in rural areas of Australia have fewer opportunities when it comes to education, employment, healthcare and housing (text pg. 350). These issues can be once again linked back to the systems that are in place within the country, the way the government approaches these issues in regards to indigenous welfare is problematic. In 2015, the Abbott government supported the decision
The suburb is named after surgeon William Redfern, who was granted 100 acres (0.40 km2) of land in this area in 1817 by Lachlan Macquarie. He built a country house on his property surrounded by flower and kitchen gardens.

Hello, I’m David Suzuki, leader of the Environmental Party of Canada. I’m always thinking green and thinking of ways to make Canada a better place. The values of the EPC include, increasing the number of scholarships and bursaries for students who struggle to pay for secondary education. We believe that students should not be held back by their financial status to get their education. Next, we will work to make amends with the Aboriginal communities in Canada and provide the proper education, healthcare, housing and living conditions that they need.
Although there are over 5000 indigenous communities around the world, the global responsibility to protect the indigenous is not being realized, since Indigenous communities still suffer socio-economical disadvantages, marginalization, discrimination and denial of justice to a certain extent. This is evident throughout the world, in nations such as Australia and Canada, which pride themselves on their nations freedom, equality and safely. Australia despite being a first world nation has immensely failed at protecting it’s indigenous population, most notably it’s Indigenous youth, since over 80% of youth suicides in 2010 were of young Aborigines. Early intervention is the key to protecting Aborigines, as commented by Social Justice Minster,
Outline and discuss the effects of culture and history on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today. (300-400 words) Aboriginals are regarded to be the first Indigenous people of Australia. Australia has two indigenous peoples – Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people. The history of the indigenous people has been majorly effected with their culture changing over the years, some have completely adapted to the western way of living and strayed away from their original hunter gatherer heritage, while others have kept the indigenous way of life and retained parts of their culture.
It’s Halloween night. Many people are dressed up in all sorts of unique, eye catching costumes. However, there are people dressed in big native headdresses, as China dolls, Egyptian Gods and Sugar skulls. It may not seem like a big deal, but all of these ‘costumes’ belong to different cultures, and each have their own historically significant story. No matter how important it is to support other cultures, the line between cultural appreciation and appropriation still exists.
A social worker has a really tough job, they have to control their feeling while still servicing the client. I am not sure about how I would handle the issue of participating in assisted suicide. Unforntualntly I don’t think that I could do it because it goes against almost everything I have learn my whole entire life. Some states have passed a law that will allow social workers to participate in assisted suicide. It can be very on the client and the social working when working with a end of life decision.

This essay will examine family violence in Indigenous Australian communities as a social issue using the SI and will focus on its development into the issue it is today through structural, historical and cultural context. Domestic violence is defined as ‘a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviours that an adult or adolescent uses to gain and maintain power and control over an intimate partner.’ (Samsel, 2013). Family Violence is the preferred term over ‘domestic violence’ in most Indigenous Australian communities, usually as it includes all forms of violence that occurs in family, intimate or other relationships that consist of support or mutual obligation (NSW Department of Health, 2011).
