The Chief Psychiatrist’s message for Mental Health Week

During Mental Health Week 2020, it is important we take time to think about, and respect, inherent dignity and humanity when considering severe and enduring mental illness: the humanity of those individuals who are living with severe mental illness, the humanity of those in the community who give so much to support individuals with mental illness, and the humanity of those clinicians and staff who devote their lives to reducing suffering.
