Health Working Group

Join this group

This group could be about a broad range of topics to do with our health including environmental issues, ideas to promote physical health and mental health, what is happening in our health system.

Think the issues of disability and accessibility are important - but also think those terms are a more negative way of coming at some topics sometimes.

For instance, for many people living with a 'mental illness', they may actually think of it more as a mental health condition like any other health condition and that helps remove stigma.
