Government called out of touch on mental health system

From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 1 June 2017

Jonathan Coleman says the country's DHB's need to lift their game in the wake of an Auditor General's report into the mental health system. The report has criticised the DHBs for discharging acute patients without enough support, no follow-up plan and into unsuitable accommodation, such as a caravan park. One under-pressure Auckland social worker says the Government's the one out of touch.
