The productivity Commission is examining both the social and economic impacts of mental ill-health.  I was privileged to be able to attend a public hearing in Brisbane on Tuesday 3 December 2019.  I hope my commentary accurately reflects issues of concern regarding mental ill-health amongst the e Queensland commercial fishing industry.

The attached transcript excerpt is from the Productivity Commission’s public hearing into mental health which took place at Central Plaza Annex Building 345 Queen Street, Brisbane, pp.84-90.
