Great I’m pleased to hear about increase access to mental health services especially for young adults. As much as it’s required I’ve heard very little about improving services and access to specialist mental health practitioners for people outside the topical youth demographic. Waiting periods of 3 months to speak with a psychologist is not good and psychiatric services are very very thin on the ground.
I don’t believe any of the political parties really understand the depth of the crisis in mental health service provision in regional Australia in spite of the facts and rising death toll
