Productivity Commission Inquiry into Mental Health 2019

Productivity Commission Inquiry into Mental Health 2019

This submission from the Mental Health Council of Tasmania (MHCT) is prepared in partnership with TasCOSS who provided recommendations in the areas of social services, housing and homelessness.

It is the view of TasCOSS that significant increased government funding and investment into housing, income support and social services is integral to support mental health in our community. We particularly advocate and call on government to invest in evidence-based preventive programs.
