Community solutions for SA’s mental health system
Posted on: Thu 22 Apr 2021
With the state’s mental health system facing crisis after crisis, debates continue about effective solutions.
While there has been a push for hospital-based solutions, the South Australian Mental Health Services Plan, prepared in consultation with those with lived experience of illness, outlines the need for community mental health support, before, during and after a crisis.
Mental Health Coalition of South Australia’s Executive Director Geoff Harris joins Breakfast’s Tom and Zoe to discuss evidence-based solutions and how we can push for their scaling up.
