The Rotary Club of Camden held a Mental Health Forum and Expo on Saturday 23rd March 2024 at the Camden Civic Centre to raise community awareness of mental health issues.
 
The aim of the Mental Health Forum and Expo was to help to de-stigmatise mental illness; deliver information about mental health to people living in our community; improve the capacity for individuals to access relevant services; improve the capacity of individuals to care for themselves if they develop a mental illness; increase community awareness about mental health; and build capacity within the community to give and get help. Mental health is a key component of the overall health and wellbeing of all Australians.  
 
The Mental Health Forum and the Expo ran concurrently in different rooms at the Civic Centre with six speakers throughout the day covering topics across the mental health spectrum and 25 stalls by a broad range of mental health care support providers.  
 
The event was free to the community.
 
Camden Rotary Club recently held the annual Pride of Workmanship Awards. The objectives of the Awards are to promote Vocational Service; encourage Pride of Workmanship in all vocations; provide employers with an opportunity to recognise employees who display qualities that are worthy of an award; and encourage favourable employer/employee relationships and a sense of community pride in individual achievement. Eleven members of the community received an Award on the night.
On Monday afternoon representatives from many Rotary Clubs in our district were given a presentation at Liverpool Hospital of their latest acquisition, a Transoesophageal Echocardiography Probe (TOE). This important piece of equipment was partly funded ($30,000) by 21 Rotary Clubs in our district including the Illawarra, the Shire, Sydney, Macarthur, and Parramatta areas. General Electric provided the remainder ($70,000) of the total cost of $100,000. Internal cardiac ultrasounds (TOE) form part of the key diagnostic procedures performed to diagnose heart disease. The small size of the mini-TOE probe allows procedures to be performed without general anaesthesia but instead uses a local anaesthetic throat spray only. This improves the safety of the procedure for patients (no intravenous drugs required) and thus avoids long wait times and hospital block.  Scott McGrath, Acting General Manager of Liverpool Hospital, Dr Melissa Leung, Director of Echocardiography, and many of the staff were very appreciative of Rotary’s contribution for providing such an important piece of equipment. Rotary making a difference in our community.
A recent guest speaker at our club was Dr Alex Buttfield, the Deputy Director and Co-Director of Emergency Medicine Training, responsible for training new emergency specialists at Campbelltown Hospital.
 
Dr Buttfield spoke passionately about his aim to upskill Emergency Department nurses in paediatric life support. The Advanced Paediatric Life Support course is widely recognised as the international gold standard in paediatric emergency training courses. The course has been developed for doctors, nurses and paramedics looking to increase their confidence and clinical skills in the emergency management of ill and injured children.
 
The initiative is already supported by the Kids of Macarthur Foundation.
