Today is Social Justice Sunday. This year, the Australian Bishops’ Social Justice Statement, To Live Life to the Full: Mental health in Australia, encourages faith communities, governments and each one of us to make mental health a priority.

The profound impact of COVID-19 has starkly revealed and reinforced the need for our society to do better in how we care for each other at all times. Addressing mental ill-health is a fundamental aspect of that care. Understanding its effects on individuals and our community helps us to become more aware of those who need our support and to do something about it.
