Never before in the history of mental health has so much been spent on so many to deliver so poorly to so few. We demand action to implement changes to the mental health system to ensure that a best practice standard of mental health care is delivered consistently to all parts of our communities in Australia. That more emphasis be given to mental health promotion to reduce the incidence and severity of mental health issues. That community based supports be complimented with meaningful vocational and education opportunities. That the "crisis" be finally and meaningfully addressed before it is too late.
Why is this important?
Currently, as numerous reports have already established over the years, mental health services are in chaos, fragmented and sub-standard. The mental health of our nation needs to be put on the front burner and treated seriously as a prime issue.
