Snipets from the inteview:

Gloria Sleaby: That must make it very difficult for you and your family. You say that mental health is running at a fragmented fashion. Do you believe that’s because of the funding or is it because of the private versus public? And how do you believe it should change?
Allan Fels: Well, that’s a huge … There are a huge set of problems in mental health. Very fundamentally, it’s not a very high priority of governments or the community. There’s quite a bit of stigma, discrimination. It’s not a very popular illness. If you talk to ministers, they’d prefer to put their money into less unpopular things. So the degree of support is not that strong, needs to be stronger.

Professor Allan Fels asks for help:

Gloria Sleaby: So I just want to ask a general question around people with mental illness that don’t have family and don’t have carers. Will there be included in the Royal Commission what support systems we can put in place for those people?
Allan Fels: Well, I’ve got two answers. I think something will be done about it, but I’d encourage anyone who wants to send in a short letter or a submission to the Royal Commission on mental health. At the time of this interview we’re doing right now, we’ve only been operating a few days, so I can’t give you a lot of information exactly on how to do a submission. But the more we hear from people, the better.

We at Canefields hope you find this interview relevant and helpful.

Community Garden

Community Gardens

Our community garden is doing really well. We’ve planted lots of new things such as lettuce, tomatoes, snow peas, capsicum, carrots and strawberries. Hopefully, soon,
we’ll be able to cook with what we grow…totally organic. We have also planted some flowers too, such as Snap Dragons and Viola’s. We will keep everyone updated with our
gardening progress.

“A Corporate Response to Mental Health” – 15 th June 2016.

The Cocktail event finally arrived and it turned out to be a phenomenal event. The proceedings went smoothly and the turn out was brilliant. The event was elegantly hosted by Councillor Stacey McIntosh and she made a sterling effort in engaging the crowd and ensuring the guests were on the edge of their seats. The speakers on the night gave timely presentations on mental health in the corporate sector but more so how their interaction with Canefields Clubhouse had been a point of transformation for them in regards to learning and being part of mental health. Logan Mayor Luke Smith highlighted his joy in being part of Clubhouse and his continual support in the Wellness Riverwalk. He even pledged a on the spot donation and was gracious in his comments toward Clubhouse. The night ushered in the start of our Wellness Riverwalk 2016 and sign ups continued well into the night. The grand moment of the night belonged to one of our members as Jo Kilby presented a moving story of how she has endured mental illness and how her relationship with Canefields has buoyed her forward and transformed her and her outlook on life. The event was brilliant and Canefields would like to thank Logan Mayor Luke Smith, Desley Scott our patron for the Wellness Riverwalk, Mariea Leckie CEO of Regional Development Australia, Kris Trott CEO of QLD Mental Health Alliance and , Mental Health Commissioner Dr Lesley Von Shoubroeck and the honoured guests that came to celebrate and continue in responding to mental health.
