Have you ever felt marginalised, excluded, mistreated or belittled when receiving healthcare? Did you feel that this was because of your faith, gender, sexuality, disability label, homelessness or another reason?
Our Intersections Project talked to eight people who received – or tried to receive – healthcare in South Eastern Sydney with intersectional needs. That means they identify with more than one group that often has been treated badly when seeking healthcare. They have fallen through the cracks or been put into the ‘too hard’ basket.
“Trying to access mental health care that works for me is so incredibly frustrating. The options for regular, free or cheap care are so few, and using them means giving up any sort of specialised treatment.” – Leo
