Australian Rotary Health in Western Australia and Rotary of Crawley proudly announce a very special address for Rotarians, Rotaractors, friends of Rotary and our wider business, community and professional networks during Mental Health Week 2019, in recognition of World Mental Health Day.
Date:Wednesday 9th October
Time: 7am to 8:30am
Location:UWA Club, Crawley
Perth Rotary Members and Friends: 
President Elect Jill Dawson has organised for several Perth Rotary Tables at the event, so email her ASAP (, if you'd like to secure a seat on the Perth Rotary Table.
Australian Rotary Health is, nationally, the largest non-government organisation funding mental health research within Australia. Come and hear about state mental health service access in WA. Join leaders in this field, discuss ideas on what Rotarians and other community leaders can do practically to take action. Help identify potential ARH research project collaborative opportunities, to better inform and empower communities regarding mental health challenges.

The WA Auditor General, Ms Caroline Spencer, will present findings from her August 2019 performance audit on Access to State-Managed Mental Health Services, which assessed whether West Australians can access adult State-managed mental health services efficiently and effectively. Ms Spencer will also discuss the analytical approach used by the audit team to map patient journeys over time and across the WA Health system, as well as the individual interactions that mental health service users experienced.
