The NSW Budget delivered welcome new funding for mental health, but still more investment is needed for people to access psychosocial mental health supports across the state.

Mental Health Coordinating Council was hoping to see additional funding allocated in the NSW Budget for a national mental health agreement, in particular funding to support an expansion in psychosocial supports delivered by the not-for-profit community sector.

We also look forward to the implementation of the Pathways to Community Living Initiative, working to transition people who have had a long stay out of hospital. MHCC will seek clarity about the recurrent funding commitment for this program to ensure the implementation of Stage 2 remains on track.
