Thinkers, practitioners, storytellers and researchers from across Australia got together in September to talk about how to apply an intersectional lens. Silvana Izzo from VTMH joined this inaugural session, initiated by Professor Olena Hankivsky, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, University of Melbourne.
Professor Hankivsky, respected expert in intersectionality, is Chair of Women’s Health and Director of the Centre for Health Equity Gender and Women’s Health Unit. We’ve been exploring her body of work, here at VTMH, for the past five years, thinking through the implications and playing our part in applying an intersectional framework to public mental health practice.
