Members Statement - Mental Health



Wednesday, 22 June 2022.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:49):

The Australian Patients Association’s Australian Healthcare Index, released this week, confirms a lot more needs to be done to support the mental health of our community.

The index shows one in four people say their mental health has declined in the last six months and almost 60 per cent of people have been waiting over three months for mental health support.

We need to do more.
