|Three months ago Australia’s newly formed National Mental Health Commission delivered a world first with a National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention (full report). It painted a compelling picture: Australia strives to be the best in progressive mental health policy but one in five Australians experience a mental health disorder and there are over 65,000 reported attempted suicides, each year.Robyn Kruk will provide a unique insight into what Australians are thinking and feeling as she outlines the findings, and implications, of the national report card on Australia’s state of mental being.|
