SA’s Mental Health Future – Election Forum


SA’s Mental Health Future – Election Forum

Now more than ever mental health must be a priority for whoever forms Government or becomes a Member of Parliament after the March State Election.

With half the population experiencing a mental illness in their lifetime it is vital that those in the sector either delivering or receiving services are aware of what the future holds.

This State Election we would like to give you the opportunity to have your very own Q&A with candidates. With our partner SACOSS we are hosting a State Election forum.

To be moderated by The Advertiser Health Reporter Brad Crouch, this forum will allow you the voter – who has a vested interest in mental health – to ask questions about the parties mental health policy.

Date: Wednesday 7 February 2018

Time: 10:30 – 11:45am

Hotel Grand Chancellor, 65 Hindley Street


We will also be broadcasting this event on Facebook Live and taking questions from Facebook and Twitter throughout.
