We had:

Christine Morgan, CEO of the National Mental Health Commission, talking about the National Mental Health Commission- Connections 2022 Webinar. This year the Commission visited 37 communities nationally across Australia from George Town TAS, up to Yirkalla NT, across to Broome WA, over to Palm Island QLD and through Victoria, NSW and QLD.

Professor Josh Francis Menzies School of Health Researchand Jade Neave, Indigenous Health Worker, talking about training remote health workers to diagnose rheumatic heart disease. A new study to improve access to culturally safe, best quality care for Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in high-burden Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities is underway after a Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Cardiovascular Health Mission Grant application was successful.

Dennis McIntosh, co playwright of ‘I is Maggie’, talking about trouble in paradise at the cross-cultural heart of JUTE Theatre Company’s newest work. In what is a first for Australian theatre in representing the cross-cultural Thai-Australian perspective on stage, I is Maggie is a story built on the contemporary narrative of an immigrant underclass and the struggles that impact their daily lives.
