Abstract: The lived experience of mental illness or working within the health/welfare fields is challenged by the notion of “social inclusion”. Should social inclusion become a way of life for all Australians? Or perhaps stay a “prescription” for those with a disability or mental health challenge, and be implemented in a fragmented fashion, rather than as an integral way of life of every responsible citizen of Australia.
