Delays 'risking patient care' (Mental Health)

MENTAL health experts are voicing concerns at the glacial pace of the federal government's flagship mental health reforms, with none of the early psychosis intervention services or the flexible care packages yet delivered, nearly two years after first being promised.

Some experts warn the delay in opening the Early Psychosis Prevention and Intervention Centres, first promised in the 2010 budget, is creating pressures to push psychosis patients into other programs less suited to treat them.
