$50m bid to save our teens
UP to 14,000 young Australians struggling with mental health issues will be offered free services in a $50 million lifeline to reduce teen suicide.
The Morrison government will today unveil a new funding package for mental health service Headspace, which operates 107 youth mental health centres.
The money will fund more clinical staff, boost services, reduce waiting times and fund a new digital service.
The funding boost comes after The Sunday Telegraph’s long-running youth suicide campaign Can We Talk saved Headspace from funding cutbacks last year.
