We celebrate Social Justice Sunday this weekend. The Catholic bishops of Australia have released the Social Justice Statement for 2020-21, which focuses on mental health titled To Live Life to the Full: Mental health in Australia today. The statement encourages parishes and local communities to be places of welcome and inclusion, overcoming the barriers and stigma often faced by people experiencing mental ill-health. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the mental health of many members of our parishes, schools and communities. Understanding mental health will help us to be aware of those who need our support. The Bishops invite us all to reject stigmatisation, to work for the transformation of social determinants of mental ill-health, and to call for policies and service provision that meets the needs of the poorest and most marginalised members of our community.
