For me, it is a personal and cathartic exercise looking back at THAT speech. But what has meant even more has been gathering the reflections and thoughts from others about then, now, and what next. In October, to mark the 10 year anniversary, I will share it all with you.
For too long, people have been discharged from hospital after a suicide attempt or suicide crisis without effective follow-up and wrap around support, often returning to the same life circumstances that very likely contributed to their attempt.
People discharged from hospital after a suicide attempt are at high risk of trying to end their lives again. That’s why Australia needs universal aftercare.
It was a pleasure to address educators at the #BeYouVirtual Conference today. Good education and strong mental health go hand in hand, helping to build resilience. Reforming our mental health and education systems is a critical part of our post-COVID social and economic recovery.

At @beyondblue we are honouring National Reconciliation Week, walking together in friendship with First Nations people. We must be brave and make change as we recognise our shared histories and culture, strengthen mental wellbeing and move forward in a spirit of respect. #NRW2022
Congratulations to @AlboMP and the Labor team! Australia has chosen change and progress. I look forward to seeing vitally needed changes for equity, diversity and inclusion.
Great to be out in SA today with my old friend, Albo. twitter.com/AlboMP/status/…
Australian women are still undervalued in the workforce, earning 13.8% or $255.30 a week less than men, which can have negative economic and social impacts over a lifetime. Thrilled to see @AlboMP’s policy to make gender pay equity an objective of the Fair Work Act.
Madeleine Albright was a pioneer in politics and diplomacy - a life lived fully that made real difference. Albright created space for other women and leaves a legacy of inspiring and empowering women to take their place at the table. My thoughts are with her family.

Really concerning research out by @IpsosUK and @GIWLkings for #IWD2022 shows 1 in 5 Australians thinks women who say they were abused make up or exaggerate claims of abuse or rape. We must do better. More >> ipsos.com/en-au/one-five…

I was honoured to give 2021’s Grace Groom Memorial Oration for @AUMentalHealth f.io/6Lc7h6oT. The pandemic has amplified the fault lines in our society: getting timely, appropriate mental health care can be a lottery, too often based on your bank balance or background.
People's trust in science is up – but just 1 in 4 said their governments placed 'a lot' of value on scientific advice. We can only tackle the biggest health challenges if people trust science. Find out more from the @wellcometrust Global Monitor wellc.me/3D3ASPA

If you told me one day, I’d be hosting my own podcast, let alone winning awards for one, I would have said: ’I’ve got as much chance of doing that as being Australia’s first female Prime Minister!'

👉 Infections are spreading 👉 Raw sewage is flowing into streets 👉 Drinking water is saltier These are some of the ways climate change is damaging health and why we need urgent action no#COP26Pbit.ly/2ZSwzIGgpv
Climate change is harming our health right now. So it's critical that global leaders use #COP26 as a forum to save lives. I'm urging them to develop a global strategy for climate action with health at the heart. bit.ly/2ZSwzIG
Thanks to @IWFglobal for the honour of induction into their International Hall of Fame, and congratulations to my fellow inductee Rosalind Brewer, CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance (@WBA_Global). #IWFLeadsChange
From food security to the spread of infectious diseases, it’s clear that the climate crisis is damaging our health. @wellcometrust outlines some of the impact we’ll see on our health and why we cannot ignore the evidence. wellc.me/3CEb4di
Climate change is creating conditions for mosquitos to thrive, so we’ll see malaria and dengue spread to more places. @wellcometrust is backing research to help us save lives.
The health of humans and our planet are intertwined. That’s why I’m at #COP26 with @wellcometrust to make sure that health is at the heart of climate action.

A great win for the Dees - well deserved, and well waited for. Commiserations to the Western Bulldogs players, coaches and staff. Upwards and onwards for next year.
November’s National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Agreement matters. If we unite with conviction, clear heads, and a collective purpose, we can do hard things. My speech here: bb.org.au/3ktDPCN twitter.com/ceda_news/stat…
Australia’s #mentalhealth and #suicideprevention systems need to be recreated with the people who use it twitter.com/ceda_news/stat…
