Social and cultural determinants of mental health

The social and cultural determinants of mental health: Collective responsibilities, individualism, austerity and entitlements consists of 5 essays from the Gavin Mooney Memorial Essay Competition. They look at mental health from various perspectives.

The winning essay was written by El Gibbs and is titled, "A place to call home: housing security and mental health". Runners up were Malcolm Forbes, a medical registrar and researcher; medical writer Olivia Hibbitt; poet Sandy Jeffs and sociologist Margaret Leggatt; and Stephen Wright, a writer and counsellor.

The compilation was recently published by the Sydney School of Public Health at the University of Sydney, and is available freely online.
