Liberals show leadership on suicide prevention

The State Liberal Party has shown that it is listening to concerns in local communities by creating the state’s first Suicide Prevention portfolio.
 
Liberal MLC John Dawkins was appointed by SA Liberal Leader Isobel Redmond as Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, following his long standing work in the sector.
 
The Shadow Cabinet will assist Isobel Redmond to shape the Opposition’s vision for the future of our state and the team’s composition shows the importance the Liberals are placing on issues across South Australia.
 
“I am honoured to be appointed to the positions of Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention,” Mr Dawkins said.
 
“As someone who has been involved in suicide prevention advocacy for many years, I look forward to my new roles and to working closely with the myriad of community organisations who work every day to stem the tide of suicide and mental health issues.
 
“I’m also looking forward to working closely with the new Shadow Minister for Health, Steven Marshall, on mental health and suicide issues.
 
“A Redmond Liberal Government will be committed to working hand-in-hand with community organisations who have the frontline experience necessary to really make a difference on mental health and suicide issues.”
