Stuart Milk, nephew of gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk, once said: 'We are less when we don't include everyone.' Mark Hayward, writing in this special issue, calls on psychologists to 'work beyond the consulting room to play an active role in building bridges between the marginalised members of a given community and the key stakeholders who can create opportunities for inclusion'.
Social inclusion also involves breaking down the 'them and us' dichotomy, and considering what it means to be a good person and professional: the topics of our other articles in this packed new year issue.
