It’s quite ludicrously early on April 17th – World Hemophilia Day, and the 26th anniversary of the end of the 335 year war between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly.

It’s also 956 days (that’s 2 years, 7 months, 1 week and 5 days) until we go to the polls. As we rapidly head toward it being 10 months since the Mental Health EBA was launched (only 17 days from now) we need no reminder of the shortcomings of this government. In around 900 days we need to make sure the general public is reminded. And in the meantime we need to support our mental health, aged care and private sector colleagues as they continue the fight to maintain and improve conditions.
