Labour promises more mental health services

Labour promises more mental health services


Labour’s promising
to reach more people suffering from mental health
problems if elected to government. Leader Andrew Little’s unveiled
a proposed $43 million scheme which would establish eight
new mental health teams across the country. Here’s our political reporter
Eruera Rerekura. He says mental health is an issue
that isn’t really spoken about. But it’s an illness
many people are affected by. If Labour’s wins
the general election, Labour will establish
eight new mental health services across the country. Peeni Henare says there will be many benefits
for Maori mental health patients. Many people
in the suicide statistics and in the communities are Maori, so we want to link them
up with those new health services. This is an issue that Mr Henare
will talk about at a hui in Ngati Hine
in the coming weeks. The health issues we will be talking
about in the coming weeks is deaths caused
by poor mental health. Labour’s promising
free consultations for people with mental illness. Eruera Rerekura, Te Karere.

    Just   destroy   that   1992   mental   health   act,   as  it   is   a  black   cloud   over   every   one   in  new   Zealand..  All   those   dangerous   drugs   they  give   folk   make   them   violent  and  that   is   the   main  reason  they   kill   others   and   them-selves.
