Hi hive mind,
I have a discussion coming up soon on the way forward for mental health policies in this country and, while i of course have my own ideas on some of the current paucities and some of the ideals we should strive towards, i thought i’d ask my goodly friends here to provide their own thoughts on how a new policy, if we could start from scratch, or from where we are, might be developed.
What are some fundamentals missing from the current policy?
What are some critical outcomes not being achieved?
Where are the opportunities in this area we’re not exploiting and what are some of the key errors of the current policies?
I’d welcome your thoughts…
