This afternoon I will be tweeting from #RANZCP2021 sessions on mental health workforce, and DV, trauma & substance use. John Allan getting us underway now. @croakeynews will be covering sessions on ADHD, and the MH of veterans and first responders The psychiatry workforce is ageing, and about 50:50 public vs private says Allan.

We'll be hearing from @kgelber next on hate speech and its consequences. A problem she says is increasing in prominence and scope #RANZCP2021 Gelber talks about the mainstreaming in modern politics of hate speech and its threat to democracy
#RANZCP2021. Political leaders including Trump engaging directly in these discourses. Australia not immune. Scale of problem is huge
