Bridging the gaps
Australia’s mental health system is fragmented with far too many people falling through the cracks. The government - through 2015’s mental health reforms and the recent 5th Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan - have made tackling this a top priority. The focus is on achieving an integrated system, with a seamless transfer of care, but it isn’t easy.
