ASSEMBLY Questions Without Notice and Ministers Statements SUZANNA SHEED

Ms SHEED (Shepparton) — My question is for the Minister for Mental Health. Minister, the front page of the Shepparton News last week featured allegations that the child and adolescent mental health service at Goulburn Valley Health was at rock bottom and that there were serious concerns about the level of service being provided and about morale in the unit. I know that health professionals in the community have raised concerns about the quality of and the access to care for children for a number of years. Attempts at advocacy and dialogue were ignored. Minister, what steps will you take to ensure that proper and appropriate child and adolescent mental health services are provided in my electorate?
