Ongoing fatigue caused by the coronavirus pandemic presents a new threat to the health and survival of Aboriginal people as they fall into the most ‘vulnerable’ health category.

With many remote communities unable to access some services Professor Helen Milroy says it is important that as a group community members are able to connect with one another.

Professor Milroy is a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and Winthrop Professor at the University of Western Australia.

She is also a Commissioner at the National Mental Health Commission.

Professor Milroy is talking with Paul Wiles.
