Mental Health Reform calls for delivery of 24/7 mental health services in Budget 2017

Mental Health Reform, the national coalition for mental health, has called on the Government to deliver 24/7 mental health services in budget 2017.

In its pre-budget submission Mental Health Reform has called for additional investment to continue the development of mental health care. Specifically, funding should be used in part to

  • Develop 24/7 crisis intervention mental health services across the country
  • Provide a minimum of one dedicated mental health worker in every primary care team.
  • Provide tenancy sustainment support for individuals with severe and enduring mental health difficulties in order to prevent homelessness
  • Deliver evidence-based supported employment to people with mental health difficulties across the country.
