Mental health funding extension offers hope

SANE Australia commends the Australian Government for its decision to continue funding for existing mental health and suicide prevention programs during 2014-15, while it considers the recommendations of the Mental Health Commission's national review.

'The Government's decision to continue funding for 12 months provides enormous relief to Australians affected by mental illness, their families, and those who work to support them,' says Jack Heath, CEO of SANE Australia, the national mental health charity.
