Failure to invest in mental health services in the community is driving families – and workers – to breaking point

Greens spokesperson for Mental Health Hon Alison Xamon MLC has extended her full support to mental health workers stopping work today at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital today, in protest of inadequate Election commitments from the WA Government to improve mental health service provision for children and young people.

Ms Xamon reiterated her concerns that the Government continued to focus spending on costly hospital care, failing to invest in prevention, early intervention and community managed services which stop people from reaching crisis point.

Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing and the protection of whistle-blowers is central to robust and effective regulatory systems. They are vital to ensuring integrity, good governance, freedom from corruption and essential to underpinning ethical behaviour within organisations.

Contrary to the common myth that many whistle-blowers’ claims are unsubstantiated; research has shown 63% of cases result in positive organisational change. Only 1% take their concerns directly to the media, with the majority going through internal processes.
