I'm catching up on some of the recorded sessions & will start a thread on the 'Impact of the UN Committee’s statement in 2019 in relation to the minimum age of criminal responsibility', one of #RANZCP2022's recorded sessions, presented by Invited speaker Dr Enys Delmage
Dr Delmage is a consultant in adolescent forensic psychiatry and has worked in an adolescent forensic inpatient unit in Porirua, New Zealand, since November 2017. He has an interest in the law as it relates to #RANZCP2022
Minimum age of criminal responsibility is defined as the age below which is deemed incapable of having committed a criminal offence. Below this age, children are 'doli incapax' - incapable of knowing that what they were doing was wrong- Dr Delmage #RANZCP2022

Starting a new thread for the next keynote by
Assoc Prof Loyola McLean, talking about 'changing bodymind: on attachment, trauma and regulation' #RANZCP2022…
How do we bring two or more very different points of view together, how do we bring the past and present together? How do we move forward as individuals, as dyads, as a college? - A/Prof McLean #RANZCP2022

New thread to kick off our next keynote from Assoc Prof Loyola McLean, who will be speaking on trauma, attachment and mental illness #RANZCP2022
McLean asks us how do we bring the past and present together in a way that changes the future. As a Yamatji woman with a stolen story this is lived experience. The Dreaming offers hope #RANZCP2022 ImageImage
In Western cosmology we join the dots to tell a story; in Aboriginal culture the spaces are joined. There is more than one way to see and solve the same problem, McLean says. Sometimes the perspective we take is crucial #RANZCP2022

Back on deck at #RANZCP2022 and tweeting from the #COVID19 symposium. @CroakeyNews will be at the session on PTSD and veterans' mental health. @RANZCP President @DrVinayLakra getting us underway. Jeff Looi giving an overview first up on pandemic impacts on mental health Image
Looi says MH consequences to date in Australia less significant than seen elsewhere, but was and continue to be increased demand on NGOs and agencies like Lifeline. Anxiety and depression increased but peaks lower than expected at 10% #RANZCP2022
As high as 25% in other comparable countries. Can't draw equivalence as different approaches in different countries. Some groups eg HCWs more affected. Most presentations tended to peak and subside, says Looi. Imposition of restrictions were found to ^ impacts #RANZCP2022 Image

Reflecting on the recent #RoeVWade developments in the US, Kulkarni says progress is not linear and seems to regress. Points to @TamePunk as just one example of the growing sense of injustice. 47% Australian women have experienced mental ill health, cost in billions #RANZCP2022
Kulkarni calls for redesign of all inpatient units, change diagnostic categories that affect women, focus on women-centred therapise, consider unique neurobiology of women, in codesign with women #RANZCP2022 Image

Hope everyone is well-rested and ready for the second full day of #RANZCP2022. We will be back for more live-tweeting soon.
Here is a thread of 5 key takeaways from the sessions I saw on Day One...
1/ It's as important to consider psychological & social factors of a person as biological. "It doesn't make sense to focus on one aspect of a person in understanding & treating psychiatric disorders"- @AllenFrancesMD #RANZCP2022
2/ The #biopsychosocial theme was emphasised by discussions about importance of narrative therapy & story-telling in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Connection to language, land & spirituality vital for recovery - Stan Grant #RANZCP2022

Retention of telehealth is having ability to maintain care, but it is also about acknowledge the technology-divide and patient preference - A/Prof Looi #RANZCP2022
Technological adaptations were made during the pandemic, but patients will still want to meet their therapists in person - A/Prof Looi #RANZCP2022

Research questions to determine how continuation or cessation of clozapine during chemotherapy impact patients risk of haematological adverse and psychiatric adverse outcomes #RANZCP2022
It is feasible & often desirable to continue clozapine through chemotherapy, due to high risk of mental state deterioration from cessation. But, continuation requires a multi-disciplinary approach - Saretta Lee #RANZCP2022

Next up is Stan Grant, on determinants of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health. Opens with a greeting in his father's Wiradjuri language. Grant's father wrote the first Wiradjuri dictionary, once arrested for speaking it in the street #RANZCP2022 Image
How do we live in a country where our presence has long been seen as something hostile, to be erased, asks Grant #RANZCP2022
The first action of a black person in the world is a reaction says Grant, citing Frantz Fanon. His own experience of this was aged 5, sitting in class. A classmate asking 'why are you so black'. Not 'why am I so white', because white was the status quo #RANZCP2022

Day 1 of #RANZCP2022 is starting soon! Am looking forward to tweeting up a storm over the next few days. The program is jam-packed full of great presentations, updates and conversations about #psychiatry & mental health.
