In the lead up to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Leaders Retreat, BEING has signed a joint letter coordinated by Mental Health Australia calling on the Prime Minister and First Ministers to take urgent action on reforms to the mental health sector.
In 2012, COAG committed to a 10-year mental health reform plan called “The Roadmap for National Mental Health Reform‘, which set out a series of indicators and targets to monitor progress by governments in the area of mental health. But nearly three years later, we are still waiting for action on reform.
Ahead of the latest COAG Leaders Retreat, Mental Health Australia CEO Frank Quinlan coordinated a joint letter signed by leading organisations in the mental health sector calling for urgent action aimed at comprehensive mental health reform.
BEING is proud to be among the signatories to this letter.
