We need free and unlimited mental health care. Everyone should have access to free, appropriate mental health care when they want and need it – not just when they can afford it.
But the Government refuses to cover it under Medicare. Both Labor and Liberal take millions in donations from private health insurance companies, and have failed to tackle the core of the problem and adequately improve mental health services.
The Greens will make mental health free. In the balance of power, the Greens will make psychology and psychiatry free and unlimited for everyone who needs it as part of expanding Medicare.
Your vote could make the difference. Macnamara is the Green’s next most winnable seat. And winning Macnamara would mean holding the balance of power. From that position, we can take real action and make sure everyone can access mental health care.
