Mental Health Australia has released an open letter to the Prime Minister asking the Federal Government to provide certainty to federally funded mental health services beyond 30 June 2015.
Neami National is one of 70 mental health organisations to sign the letter and
experience the impact on staff and consumers of not knowing if and/or how services will continue.
The letter from MHA CEO Frank Quinlan to Tony Abbott states that some services are already considering the termination of staff due to this uncertainty and that it is 'causing a huge disruption to organisations and, increasingly, deep anxiety amongst the people they serve.'
