At the moment anyone that feels they would benefit from counselling goes on a waiting list for Government provided counselling. The waiting list is endless and it takes upto a year to receive support. Qualified local counsellors are available immediately but this would be self funded. I am proposing that the Government pays private counsellors to offer counselling to their local community.
Why is this important?
Mental Health is so important. Counselling therapy needs to be made available just the same as any other injury, free of charge with an immediate referral to be seen straight away.
