Tribute to Don McDonald AM

February 13, 2018

I ask the House to acknowledge the sad passing of mental health advocate and lifelong defender of industrial rights Don McDonald, AM, who passed away in January.

 

Don was a proud Member of the Order of Australia, having been recognised for his work as State Secretary of the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union and co-founder of the Schizophrenia Research Institute of Australia.

 

At his memorial service Don was remembered as the founding father of schizophrenia research in Australia, with his campaigning resulting in the establishment of the Schizophrenia Research Institute.

 

I extend my heartfelt condolences to all of Don's family, including his wife, Marilyn, and children Warwick, Craig and Lara, as well as his many grandchildren. Don was an impressive man. He was a doer who made a significant difference in the worlds of industrial relations and mental health.

 

He leaves us with a strong legacy. Just last year Don organised a community forum on mental illness that attracted more than 500 people. I am working on realising outcomes from the forum and a foundation is being established in Don's name in support of schizophrenia research.

 

Vale Don McDonald, AM.
