"Since 2011, the number of young Aboriginal people under the age of 25 [who have] died from suicide has continued to decline," she said, but "we're a long way short of where we should be."
Last year the WA coroner investigated the suicide of an 11-year-old boy in Geraldton.
Morton said the level of trauma young Indigenous people are living with is immense.
"When young Aboriginal children are exposed to a series of harm and neglect over a longish period of time and they see other people in their family dying from suicide," she said, "it might not be as difficult for them to see [killing themselves] as another option for them to consider."
Georgatos told BuzzFeed News that if it were a non-Indigenous community there would be more outrage.
"If there were white communities living in the same conditions as a lot of these Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander communities, there would be an outcry, it would not be permissible," he said. "Kids are sometimes living in shanty towns and tent cities, I've seen it. People living under corrugated iron without electricity or water would not be permissible if it were a white community.
"It's an indictment on our nation; our policies should focus on prevention. Real prevention is to address the disparate rates born from the cesspool of dysfunction, the sense of hopelessness, the domestic violence, the filling of our jail with low-level offenders, the tsunami of poverty-related issues."
The WA coroner is launching an investigation into several youth suicides across the Kimberley region.
