Quarterly Essay: Mental illness and vulnerability in Australia

Mental illness is the great isolator - and the great unifier. Almost half of us will suffer from it at some point in our lives; it affects everybody in one way or another. Yet today Australia's mental health system is under stress and not fit for purpose, and the pandemic is only making things worse. What is to be done?

THE IDEA OF AUSTRALIA

Julianne Schultz's important, searing and compelling book explains us to ourselves and suggests ways Australia can realise her true potential. Urgent, inspiring and optimistic, The Idea of Australia presents the vision we need to fully appreciate our great strengths and crucial challenges.

WHO NEEDS THE ABC?

Matthew Ricketson and Patrick Mullins chart how the best-trusted news organisation in Australia arrived at its current predicament- doing the most it ever has, with less than it needs, under a barrage of constant criticism.

THE SPACE BETWEEN THE STARS

Indira Naidoo has written a heart-rending, at times funny, and uplifting tribute to love and our innate need to connect to the natural world, a celebration of the reassuring cycle of renewal that sustains and nourishes us all. For fans of Julia Baird's Phosphorescence, Sarah Wilson's This One Wild and Precious Life or Leigh Sales' Any Ordinary Day.

TRUE FRIENDS

Patti Miller is back with a revealing and powerful memoir about the making and unmaking of friendships. Friendships are among the most important relationships in our lives, often outlasting love affairs, marriages, even, at times, family connections. The loss of a friend can be one of life's most disturbing events, yet these 'friend break-ups' are little acknowledged in our culture.

IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST

Pocket sized but powerful, In the National Interest is a new series in the Monash University Publishing list that is focused on the challenges Australia confronts. The series informs, influences and inspires public discourse. Showcasing experts both from within Monash and beyond, these short, thought-provoking and accessible books will address the major issues of our times, from public policy to governance and government. Perfect for the thoughtful commuter or an intellectual lunch break.
