Queensland Parliament’s Mental Health Select Committee will hold a public hearing in Bundaberg as part of an inquiry into the opportunities to improve mental health outcomes for residents.
Committee Chair Joe Kelly MP encouraged locals to attend the public hearings to watch the proceedings.
“We will be at The Waves Sports Club from 11.30am to 3pm on Monday 7 March to hear from stakeholders including community organisations and the Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service,” he said.
The committee will also conduct site visits in Hervey Bay.
Mr Kelly said that the public hearings would not be the only time the committee would hear from regional Queenslanders.
“The committee also plans to conduct public hearings in Mount Isa and Townsville later in March 2022 and in Cairns in April 2022,” he said.
The Mental Health Select Committee of the 57th Parliament was established by the Queensland Legislative Assembly on 2 December 2021 to conduct an inquiry into the opportunities to improve mental health outcomes for Queenslanders and report back to the House.
Information about the inquiry is available from the Mental Health Select Committee’s website.
