The Chief Mental Health Advocate, Ms Debora Colvin, stepped down from that role last Friday after a distinguished 13 years in the role.
She has forged an Advocacy Service with an incredibly strong integrity of model. Under her sage leadership, MHAS has been a true beacon for system accountability and a never-dimmed light on the path towards critical rights for the most vulnerable individuals in our community. Our collective thanks must go to Debora, with best wishes for her future.
We warmly welcome Ms Sarah Pollock as the new Chief Mental Health Advocate, and I look forward to working with her and the MHAS under her leadership.
