Pre-pandemic Australia was seen as an epicentre of hope – that despite high rates of loneliness and suicidality, we were getting buy-in on the important work to be done in mental health. Mental illness is costing Australia thousands of lives each year, as well as counting for 35% loss of GDP from health problems. So why, despite the daily reminder from COVID that prevention is better than a cure, are we not doing more?
