Greens on mental health and dental

By johnboy - 9 October 2012 1

The Greens’ Amanda Bresnan is seeking the reflected glory of Richard Di Natale (yes indeed, who?) while launching more health policy:

The Greens health election release today includes new funding of:

— $35 million for mental health, to support people living with a mental illness, with a focus on community-based and run services;

— $1.9 million for dental health, to employ dental hygienists; and

— $300,000 for a feasibility study into a second hospice that is publicly owned and managed.

What’s Your opinion?

$35 million for mental health and only $1.9 million for dental… ?

How about we reverse those figures… everybody needs dental care (which is in many cases prohibitively expensive), but not everyone is crazy.

And the crazy folk will still benefit, via better dental care. 🙂
