Constituency Question: Mental Health Workers

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke) (12:41:19): (620) My constituency question is to the Minister for Education. What information can the minister provide on when students in the Yuroke electorate will benefit from the Andrews Labor government’s plans to put mental health workers in every Victorian government secondary school? This initiative will build on the government’s doctors in schools program, which has provided students at Craigieburn Secondary College and Mount Ridley College with access to in-school GP services. I am thrilled that the government is investing in the health and wellbeing of young people in the Yuroke electorate by ensuring that they have the support they need, and I look forward to sharing the minister’s response with the community.
