It was fantastic to announce a Headspace for Grafton and the Clarence Valley last week.
Not only are we getting a Headspace, we are also getting more psychiatric services, a Healthy Clarence Suicide Prevention Plan, as well as a package of additional mental health services and family support services.
Importantly, this is only the beginning.
I announced a grant of more than $1.5 million to Bulgarr Ngaru Aboriginal Medical Service in Grafton last week to improve access to better health care services across the Clarence Valley and the Richmond Valley.
Also last week, I opened new Disability and Automotive workshops at St Andrews Christian School.
The workshops include adjustable bench heights and electronically adjustable machine benches.
The Federal Government contributed some of the funding for this project. Congratulations to everyone involved.
I recently thanked Yamba Surf Life Savers Mikey Gilliman and Harry Fahey in Parliament, along with two local surfers, Shane Henwood and Shane Sutherland, who conducted an outstanding rescue at Pippi Beach recently.
