David Silkoff

David Silkoff is an occasional writer, and a full time mental health clinician in Melbourne. He has worked in the frontline of mental health and social exclusion for nearly 15 years, in London, Melbourne, and for a short period, which was limited due to the difficulties of working with limited language abilities, in Israel. He writes opinion pieces only occasionally, and spends the bulk of his writing time constructive short stories. He describes his politics as an unfashionable Social Democratic kind.
