Statement from Lucy Roffey and Noel Harvey

Published on 15 July 2019


We are pleased today to be hosting in Maryborough the only regional and rural hearing of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.

It is important that the Royal Commission is able to hear from our community and the barriers to receiving adequate mental health services in rural areas and in particular in Central Goldfields Shire. 

We were able to bring this hearing to Maryborough through our collaborative approach and partnerships with Maryborough District Health Service, Maryborough Education Centre, Go Goldfields and Committee for Maryborough.

The hearings are open to the public and commenced at 10am in the Community Hub.

If you or a family member has immediate concerns or requires assistance, contact BeyondBlue on 1300 224 636 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.
