THE Shire of Murray and Coodanup College have been announced as finalists for the 2019 Western Australian Mental Health Awards.

The Shire of Murray is a finalist for the Lotterywest Innovation for Change Award while Coodanup College has been nominated for the Mentally Healthy Education Award.

The announcement was made as part of World Mental Health Day and highlighted the achievements of people and organisations in WA who demonstrate mental health excellence, innovation, as well as initiative in supporting consumers, families, and carers.

Deputy Premier Roger Cook said all finalists should be congratulated.

“The Western Australian Mental Health Awards play an important part in recognising and rewarding outstanding achievements in improving the mental health and wellbeing of Western Australians,” he said.

“I also encourage Western Australians to use Mental Health Week as a catalyst to take steps in making positive, long-lasting change to their own mental health, and those of their loved ones.”

The award winners will be announced and celebrated on November 18 on the night before the WA Mental Health Conference.
