Mental health announcement "nothing new" - National

From Morning Report, 6:12 am on 9 September 2019

The Opposition says there's nothing new to see with the Government's announcement of a funding boost for 20 existing mental health services. Yesterday the Prime Minister and Health Minister announced $6-million for 22 general practices already providing a service and allocated $30-million for the creation of new front-line services, which will start operating next year. Our political reporter, Jo Moir, spoke to National's mental health spokesperson, Matt Doocey, who says after two years there's still no plan.
