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.

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.
