A Predictable and Preventable Path: Aboriginal People with mental and cognitive disabilities in the criminal justice system

A Predictable and Preventable Path: Aboriginal People with mental and cognitive disabilities in the criminal justice system:  https://www.mhdcd.unsw.edu.au/

There is an accompanying series in the Conversation this week.  Please go to: https://theconversation.com/why-aboriginal-people-with-disabilities-crowd-australias-prisons-48166

Finally Jon Stewart Lateline has interviewed Professor Baldry and Dr Mindy Sotiri and Ms Brenda Mitchell from the Community Restorative Centre who are responsible for a programme operating in Broken Hill assisting people transitioning out of detention - many of whom have disabilities - http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2015/s4344044.htm

If you are still in the planning stages for speakers for the day could I recommend the Law Council having a look at Professor's Baldry's work and consider her participation and if possible presenting her work.

Kind Regards
