A mental health disaster looms on Australia. Subsidise mental health therapy now

We have subsidised mental health therapy. It is called "Better Access". It generously subsidises services to the tune of $155 per session for clinical psychologists. Unfortunately many of these professionals are incredibly greedy and insist that people pay gap fees of $150 or more. Meanwhile groups that may be highly experienced in providing actual psychotherapy are not eligible for any subsidy. That is the real problem.
