This following video question was sent to ABC's Q&A program, hoping we might get an answer from the Australian Federal Minister for Mental Health, Mark Butler. Along with 5 other separate questions about cuts to psychological treatment services in the Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative, our question did not go to air. This is a serious issue, because by the end of the year, our Government plans to scale the program back even further - ten sessions with no exceptions.
Feel free to share this video widely with those who may be interested via Twitter, Facebook, or other social media.
The Alliance for Better Access is asking you to put YOUR question about the cuts to Better Access in a video - it's easier than you might think. If you're a mental health practitioner, now is the time to speak up, because we only have until the end of the year.
