My brother was a victim. he is dead now and our family has no doubt that he was abused and that this caused his road to self destruction. His death has had a spiralling devastating impact on a huge number of issues in our family. Fundamentally the root cause of a vast number of problems. We were going to just bury it all but with the increasing amount of evidence I feel compelled to start to take some action. Can anyone advise where to now. What would be my first step?

Debbies – sadly this is not the only incident I have heard in relation to abuse and related suicide at Marist/Dara. I am very sorry. I also support Canberra Gardner’s comments in relation to Jason Parkinson. He is a good man and i also trust him in this matter. Also you can contact a group of us who are starting a support/lobby group at The address may change but I will let you know. Take care and please know that you and your family are not alone and have support.

Debbies…….I am sorry for your loss. It must be hard on you and your family.

You are right, the amount of evidence is now quite overwhelming, and very postive for all the victims fighting for closure.

Please understand that you and your family are not alone in this matter……there are others that are dealing with the same issue. Plus there are numerous people, and professionals that can help.

Good luck in your search for peace…… isn’t an easy path to take, but I honestly believe (with good professional help) it is worth taking……

Debbies, Call Jason Parkinson at Porters Lawyers. He can be trusted and knows everything assocaited with the Marist and Daramalan cases. He can also organise for professional help, at no cost to you……..He has and is still helping a lot of us.

That would be my recommendation.
