This email is being sent to you
 (and all other Rotary members from Perth to Mandurah)
 at the request of ARH WA Regional Director, PDG Jerry Pilcher
 to invite you to attend a unique breakfast event
 being hosted by the Rotary Club of Crawley
 at which the WA Auditor General Ms Caroline Spencer
 will speak about Access to State Managed Mental Health Services in WA.
 We expect the function will be well attended by mental heal practitioners
 and it would be great for Rotary to be well represented
 also especially since all proceeds will go to the ARH Lift the Lid campaign. 

The subject is always topical given that one in five
 Western Australians will experience a mental health issue in any one year.

Also if you are Perth based and able to host a Rotarian
