The #SpeakingOurMinds series of articles was conceived and organised by mental health and
human rights advocate Simon Katterl and was edited by Dr Ruth Armstrong.
In the six months leading up to the 2022 Federal election, Croakey published 94 election-related articles from 65 contributors. These put a sustained focus on key health equity issues, including the climate crisis, the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, health reform, social determinants of health, media-related issues, COVID, the health and aged care workforce, housing, aged care, integrity in government, the Uluru Statement from the Heart, primary healthcare, justice-related concerns, mental health and the health of LGBTIQ communities. We also covered the implications for health of the rise of Independent candidates.
