Submission on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention
Mar 24, 2021, 22:28 PM
There is a strong relationship between mental ill health and other experiences of disadvantage. For example, our members have found that people with experiences of trauma, unemployment, and homelessness are also more likely to experience mental illness. These relationships between mental health and disadvantage can exacerbate each other. This submission explores these factors, and draws the Committee’s attention to Anglicare Australia pieces that explore these issues in greater detail.
