Constituency questions – Mount Waverley Electorate
My constituency question is to the Minister for Mental Health, and I ask: how is the Andrews government supporting people in my electorate who live with acute mental illness? I have been contacted by a family in Mount Waverley who are very familiar with our local mental health system. A young woman from this family requires ongoing support and care from our acute mental health system, and this includes ongoing visits to Box Hill Hospital and Upton House. Over several months I have spoken to the grandmother and mother, and I know they will be very interested in the work this government is doing to support those in our community who require these services. I would also like to remind people that submissions to the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System are still open. I encourage all of my constituents and everyone here that has come into contact with our mental health system to please allow their stories to be heard.
