FUND THE GAP. MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!

What We’re Doing

As the NDIS rolls out, the Victorian State Government is removing funding to state mental health services.

This will have a dramatic and devastating impact on the mental health sector. Despite the continuous meetings with the Victorian Government where members have had an opportunity to detail the massive issues and shortfalls of the NDIS for the workforce, the State is yet to act.

1300 Jobs that will be lost in Victoria and services will disappear for 90,000 Victorians.

The ASU is calling on the Andrews’ Government to immediately re-fund state-based Community Mental Health services!

Help us save community mental health in Victoria.
