October is Mental Health Month. It’s fair to say that most of us are feeling some kind of mental health pressures. Victorians need extra support in managing our mental wellbeing and the Andrews government is not wasting a moment responding to increased demand.
Just recently, Ringwood welcomed a community mental health pop-up clinic which delivers a mix of in-person appointments, telehealth and walk-in sessions. This clinic is made possible by a $22 million investment from the Andrews government.
This investment builds on top of the $225 million that we have already provided to help our mental health system reach more people, more quickly during this pandemic.
