In the April 2017 Australasian Psychiatry podcast I talk with Professor McGorry about his ongoing efforts to improve the lives of people with mental illness through organisations he helped found, including headspace and Orygen Youth Health. 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.
