AMA submission: 5th National Mental Health Plan

9 Dec 2016

Shortcomings of the current draft Plan mean it should be regarded as only the beginning of a process to develop a robust and useful national plan for mental health care. The Plan should address workforce needs and the significant issues and risks in devolving responsibilities to regional approaches through PHNs and LHNs. There is a clear need for clinical input in regional approaches to mental health care.
