Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can affect anyone as the result of public or personal disaster, but is particularly associated with defence and emergency services personnel. There is growing recognition of gaps in detection and support of veterans, police, and other groups at high risk of traumatic experience, including formal investigations such as the Productivity Commision's report A Better Way to Support Veterans (2019), which described the system for veteran's compensation and rehabilitation as 'not fit for purpose'. The June 2020 Australasian Psychiatry podcast interviews Professor Sandy McFarlane, Director of the Centre for Traumatic Stress Studies at the University of Adelaide. Professor McFarlane is an internationally recognised expert in the field of disasters and post-traumatic stress disorder, for which he was awarded the Order of Australia in 2011.

It has been more than 50 years since the Referendum changing the Australian constitution to extend full citizenship and the right to vote to Indigenous Australians, and New Zealand was a trailblazer in extending the vote both to women and to Maori people in the 19th Century. Nevertheless, every few years we face a new reminder that the Indigenous people of both countries still face significant barriers in most of the areas contributing to general health and wellbeing like the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and the movement for a Voice to Parliament.

The August 2019 Australasian Psychiatry podcast features an interview with Professor Helen Milroy, descendant of the Palyku people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia, and Professor of the University of Western Australia, undertaken during the RANZCP Congress in Cairns. During the interview we discuss issues arising from the Congress session on "Indigenous healing and psychiatry", and the need to develop new ways of thinking about and addressing Maori, Aboriginal, and Torres Strait Islander wellbeing.

The movement to care for people with mental illness and intellectual disability in the general community rather than in large institutions shifted the priorities of care away from minimising risk towards increasing autonomy. It was equally unsurprising that most of those affected benefited from increased control over their lives, while some appeared to use their freedom unwisely. Notwithstanding difficulties with its implementation, the National Disability Insurance Scheme shows that there is still a broad appetite for ambitious efforts to increase the control of people with disability over their own lives and care.

Mental health legislation balances competing aims including patient care, safety, and autonomy, with public expectations of justice, humane treatment, and professional discretion. The difficulty of satisfying all is shown by the recent comment by the United Nations Committee for the Rights of People with Disabilities that all people have legal capacity at all times, leading to the conclusion that involuntary treatment and substitute decision-making are unethical.

The October 2018 podcast interviews Associate Professor Christopher Ryan, Director of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at Sydney’s Westmead Hospital, and Associate Professor at the Sydney Health Ethics centre of the University of Sydney. Professor Ryan has numerous publications covering delirium, risk categorisation, and ethical practice in psychiatry. Professor Ryan highlights psychiatrists’ unique responsibility for the exercise of involuntary detention for the treatment of mental illness; discusses recent improvements in Australasian legislation governing this responsibility; and suggests that improved understanding of mental health legislation covering involuntary treatment should be a priority for psychiatric training and continuing professional development.

A driving force in the emergence of the Recovery movement has been the increasing sense of agency of people with mental illness in their own return to mental health. Peer worker programmes leverage individual experiences of successful recovery from mental illness to provide patients with exemplars to help them find their own paths back to health. The October podcast features Dr Frances Dark, Clinical Director of the Rehabilitation Academic Clinical Unit, Metro South Health, Brisbane, who talks about developing long-stay psychiatric rehabilitation services primarily staffed by peer workers. Dr Dark believes that peer workers should not displace allied health professionals in treating mental illness, but can complement their clinical skills, with powerful roles in promoting engagement, autonomy, and communication. While acknowledging the specific circumstances of peer workers, Dr Dark reports that in practice perceived problems such as the possibility of peer workers becoming mentally unwell are most appropriately handled using the same principles and mechanisms as with other health workers, particularly self-care, work-place flexibility, and professional responsibility.

The revolutionary impact of Freud’s empirically derived and intuitively developed psychoanalysis generally obscures his early attempts to ground his invention in a secure neuroscientific framework. In the June issue of the Australasian Psychiatry podcast I speak with Dr George Halasz, child psychiatrist, about how rapid advances in neuroscientific understanding over the last thirty years is starting to change psychoanalytic theory and practice. Using his background in trauma therapy as an example, Dr Halasz describes how an awareness of the dynamic systems within and between clinician and patient in therapy can improve outcomes and reduce conscious and unconscious distress for both parties.

Professor McFarlane identifies current gaps in treatment and support of patients with traumatic illness, with a growing awareness of the importance of trauma responses in serious mental illness, the neurobiological underpinnings of resilience and sensitisation, and the need for greater attention to the recognition and treatment of trauma in mental health training.

Professory McGorry explains the importation of terms like clinical staging from oncology, and proposes that mental illnesses are among the most treatable of non-communicable diseases, with the highest payoff in reduced morbidity, mortality, and increased social capital.
