EQUAL OPPORTUNITY ACT — REVIEW

13. Hon ALISON XAMON to the parliamentary secretary representing the Attorney General:

  • Will the McGowan government commit to introducing legislation this term to amend equal opportunity laws to protect all workers, including staff of members; and, if not, why not?

Hon MATTHEW SWINBOURN replied:

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.
