Government begins roll out of mental health funding

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 9 September 2019

The government has started rolling out its new funding for front-line mental health services. Yesterday, it announced $6 million of funding for mental health services at 22 general practices and a kaupapa Maori provider. The Ministry of Health will soon ask for proposals to create new, free mental health services worth $30 million in areas currently without them.
