New Conservative spokesman for Mental Health, Stephen Taylor, has issued a challenge for anyone to debate the effectiveness of our current Mental Health system, and what is required to fix it, with him.
Taylor is seriously concerned about the complete lack of effectiveness and the misuse of resources Mental Health has been operating in for decades. Successive governments have spurned clear research which, if taken heed of, would transform the system out of crisis mode.
Taylor entered the conversation on talk back this morning and explained clearly the problems we face in this critical area of need.
