Crazy young blokes a massive burden to Australian society, apparently

It's amazing the range of different areas of life and culture in Australia where you can find gender segregation. Today in the news we have sex segregation in mental illness media scare stories (or is it just another bit of attention-grabbing misandry?)

Unless I'm mistaken the report (it's not a study as has been incorrectly reported by the ABC) that is behind this media story contains the good news that 92.5% of mentally ill people in Australia are employed, which is I think an excellent effort by the insane (and their bosses and co-workers), but is a statistic that is highly unlikely to make it into any news story.
