We hear the people who are struggling with their mental health or addiction.
Budget 2019 is a significant step towards delivering the Green Party Confidence and Supply Agreement to enable “everyone has access to timely and high quality mental health series, including free counselling for those under 25 years,” and an increase in funding for addiction services.
The heart of wellbeing must be the mental health of our people.
