$2.3 billion to be spent on mental health. Why it does not meet the mark for our community.
Every dollar of the announced record spend on mental health in the federal budget is well overdue, and I am sure it will save some lives. However, this spending does not provide the structural reform that will fix our broken mental health system. Sadly, it seems the government cares more about the short-term political cycle rather than the long-term health of our country.
