Cate has witnessed the failings of our mental health system and cares deeply about ensuring adequate access and working to address the systemic issues that cause and exacerbate mentally ill health.

With disastrous private partnerships dominating the healthcare system in NSW, Cate believes that healthcare must be returned to public hands and out of the hands of profit-driven shareholders. She wants a state-owned pharmaceutical company established and funded and believes in promoting research into alternative therapies such as the use of psychedelics to treat mentally ill health.
