Aussies get mental help
THOUSANDS of Australians with mental health problems are set to benefit from a boost in services in the new year.
More than $113 million in federal funding will be pumped into mental health services including online suicide prevention tools.
It is part of Labor's $274 million mental health strategy, outlined earlier this year.
Minister for Mental Health Mark Butler said a range of programs would be funded.
“These include assisting workers with depression, supporting men's mental health and improving the mental resilience of children,” he said.
