Katy Gallagher is throwing herself on a grenade and kicking off consultation for the location of new mental health facilities.
Everyone wants more mental health facilities. Almost no-one wants them in the neighbourhood.
Of particular interest will be this one:
- The ACT Government had identified three potential sites to locate the secure mental health facility, including:
— Gungahlin Block 440;
— Gungahlin Block 775 (adjacent to Bimberi); and
— Symonston Section 49 Block 11 (former Quamby site)
They’re still looking for potential homes for the adolescent and young adult unit.
Apparently there will be more info on the health website soon.
