When we need help for mental health, the NHS offers it free
- by admin
Health Minister Jill Hennessy said the government would soon start providing free mental health services to all people.
Ms Hennessys statement came after a survey of more than 6,000 people in the state found one in four Australians had suffered from mental health issues.
“I want to take a moment to acknowledge that people have a right to access and receive a service free of charge,” Ms Henessy said.
“In this digital age, people have access to their digital data, their digital health records, their mobile data, they can access those services.”
And that’s why we are providing a free mental healthcare service for all Australians.
“Ms Hennessey said there were no specific figures on how many people would get access to the free mental wellness service, but the data showed more than 1.5 million Australians received mental health care in 2016-17.
She said that was “a record for mental illness in Australia”.
Ms Hennessesy said there was a “clear and urgent need” for more mental health service providers to be trained and trained in the areas of technology, information and mental health.
The most common mental health condition that Australians have is depression, which can be caused by depression, anxiety or a combination of all of these things,” she said.
