Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (Question 109) My question is to the Minister for Mental Health. The Prahran Mission drop-in centre in Chapel Street, Prahran, was forced to close after the previous government cut funding to non-clinical community-based mental health services. 

This closure has affected Prahran's most vulnerable residents experiencing mental health issues. Many residents, as well as former clients, have raised this issue with me, stressing the important and beneficial role the Prahran Mission drop-in centre plays in our community by assisting those experiencing mental health issues. Is the government's $400 000 commitment to Prahran Mission specifically for the re-opening of the purpose-built drop-in centre in Chapel Street, Prahran?
