MAKE A SUBMISSION TO THE MENTAL HEALTH INQUIRY

Amanda, as Chair of the NSW Upper House Health Committee, has established an inquiry into the equity, accessibility and appropriate delivery of outpatient and community mental health care in NSW. 

Through this inquiry, the committee will examine outpatient and community mental health services from the perspective of patients and carers, and the capacity of state and other community health services including in rural, regional and remote New South Wales. The committee will also consider the benefits and the risks associated with online and telehealth services, given their increasing prevalence as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is an opportunity for people across New South Wales to have their experiences heard, and to examine opportunities for meaningful reform.
