In Conversation With... Dr Ruth Vine and Mary O'Hagan - Part 1
Jul 20, 2022 Episode 28
Mental Health Professionals' Network

What does the first Executive Director of Lived Experience think of the current support provided to people in mental health crisis? There’s no holding back in this passionate conversation!

In the first installment of this five-part series, learn about the mental health service system through the respective - and at times contrasting – lenses of clinician and lived experience experts; psychiatrist and Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Mental Health, Dr Ruth Vine; and Victoria’s inaugural Executive Director of Lived Experience, Mary O’Hagan.

Tune in as Ruth and Mary debate the strengths and limitations of the current mental health system from the perspective of their leadership positions. In this episode they consider how lived experience is taking a lead role in the provision of mental health care; what’s in the practitioner risk management ‘toolkit’ – and ask the vital question: is this enough to provide effective support to people in need within a system under pressure?
