“Another Goodbye” – 17 September 2013

In Letters from Alice // 2013.09.18 //

Hi Judy

Sad last debrief over a drink with an astute, honorable and very valuable mental health professional (Social Worker) leaving the N.T after some years …. traumatised by the dire situation for the children … but compounded by the lack of professional integrity (and competence) she encountered in so many of the “professionals” she had to work with …. utterly worn out and despairing at the collusion between managers and professionals to keep the status quo … (another example of what I was talking about in the radio interview) …. I will miss her support and clarity of thinking so much …. even though she is happy to give me some supervision from interstate it is not the same as knowing she was always “there”…
