Local Community Objects to Mental Facility
The concerns expressed by the local community with regard to locating a care facility in the Perth suburb are altogether unfounded according to the Mental Health Council . The Western Australian Government has faulted the Vincent Council for having reversed the approval given to the 20-bed facility.

The local community has expressed fears that violent inmates of the house may create problems for the people. The community has been called upon to exercise greater tolerance by Keith Wilson, the spokesman for the Mental Health Council. He also went on to add that the new facilities will be of the 'state of the art' kind, with greater safeguards.

Besides all people suffering from mental illnesses are not necessarily violent. Jim McGinty, the Health Minister also insists upon the approval being granted to the facility. Jim McGinty has opined that local councils need to extend their support towards such facilities. Such an attitude by the local government amounts to catering to the gallery.
