Water weighs on mental health

The Rural Mental Health Network is urging Government to keep the social impacts of the Murray Darling Basin Plan in mind to safeguard the mental health of rural communities.

With the impending release of the draft Plan, the potential impacts headlined discussions at today's meeting of the Network in Sydney. Rural Mental Health Network Chairman Sarah Thompson said there is concern about the social and economic consequences of any permanent water reductions associated with the Plan.
