Health Services in Jamestown

The Hon. J.S.L. DAWKINS: On 12 October, I was pleased to attend the launch of the Mid North Suicide Prevention Network in Jamestown. More than 200 people packed the local memorial hall on a Friday night for this event, which was hosted by Andrew Stacey, chair of the network, and compered by Adam Clay of the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist. It was a privilege to present the state government's cheque for $5,000 as an establishment grant, which accompanies the launch of all suicide prevention networks. The role of the Northern Areas Council and the initial contact with me by Mayor Denis Clark in 2016 in the establishment of the network should also be acknowledged.
