The girl's death prompted the federal government to send suicide prevention researcher Gerry Georgatos to Looma to provide crisis support to the community and families affected by the suicide.
The latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) report, released this week, found that Indigenous suicide rates are increasing. In 2014, it was the leading cause of death for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged between 15 and 35.
Indigenous children aged 14 and under are almost 10 times more likely to kill themselves than their non-Indigenous peers.
Georgatos wrote in The Stringer this week that those numbers, as grim as they are, are conservative, "The actual suicide toll and its rates are understated because of under-reporting issues".
"Some of us estimate that the suicide rate is as high as one in 10 to one in 12 deaths," Georgatos wrote. "From 2009 to 2013, the suicide rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders was officially one in 19 deaths."
