Dear Tandem members and supporters,
We are excited by the announcement of Australia’s new mental health official in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak and would like to congratulate Associate Professor Ruth Vines, former Chief Psychiatrist of Victoria, who will become the first Deputy Chief Medical Officer with a focus on mental health.
Professor Vine’s role will be to listen to community concerns and provide advice to the government, with a focus on anxiety linked to physical distancing and economic stress. Read about the announcement here.
It is heartening to see mental health on Australia’s agenda and we will continue to strive for a system that is safe, inclusive, fair and funded in Victoria.
Our link to register for Tandem Time with Carer Gateway didn’t work last week. We apologise for the frustration and ask you to register again for the Zoom meeting below.
