Commenting on the story: ‘Not going to waste my time’: Mental health chief blasts SA Health on way out door

The mental health system is failing those who need it most, people are dying, they are slipping through the cracks in system that is failing them. What will it take ?

People with a mental illness deserve to have the care they need. How many times do you have to present at emergency for a person to get the care they need?

As the mother of a child battling a mental illness, we’re helpless as we watch our daughter slip through the cracks of a system that is not resourced or structured adequately to provide the care she needs. – Name supplied

Commenting on the story:‘Health disaster unfolding’ as hospital stayed open without doctors

If we lived in a third world country, I could understand this situation. But we do not. We live in an incredibly wealthy country.

Our government should hang its head in shame. Appalling and disgusting situation for our health system to be in. Mismanagement in all areas in our health system right across the board. – Christine Szmurlo

I believe that after it opened, Noarlunga Hospital ran fully staffed for a year without any patients. I remember the government telling us that it was running very well.

This seemed to be a real-life occurrence of the ‘best run hospital in Britain’ in Yes Minister that treated no patients. – Oliver Frank

Commenting on the story: Chapman appoints her Chief of Staff as SA’s new Equal Opportunity Commissioner

Having lived in the Norther Territory during Ms Carney’s tenure as a politician and having the opportunity to speak with her on a number of occasions on a range of issues, I am confident that she will discharge her role as EO Commissioner with a high degree of compassion, professionalism and integrity. – Lachlan Miller

Commenting on the story: Commercial contenders in the 2021 SA Architecture Awards

So refreshing and inspirational to see such creative, exciting and functional architecture in Adelaide. It is a reflection of Adelaide’s emergence as a vibrant and forward looking place to live. Well done! David Smallacombe

Nice to see some architectural skills and responsibility emerging in Adelaide. However I am hoping bigger budgets in the future will enable architecture to become commonplace and more visible for appreciation. – Barry Hailstone
