I thought the 4 corners report on the need for better mental health care in Mackay was very interesting, though heart-wrenching. Was it an accurate depiction in your experience in Mackay?
I find thinking about mental health problems so complex. Complex because there are so many causes. Complex because there are so many different kinds of conditions. Complex because there is no simple fix. Yet though it is complex we need to grapple with the issues.
I hope and pray that the government will continue to work towards better care for those with mental illness in Mackay. Further I hope that as a new church in Mackay next year, we can provide support and play our part in helping people with mental health on the road to recovery.
