Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest psychiatrist Dr. Dan Bober discuss the escalating mental health crisis in New South Wales, Australia.

Over 200 young individuals, some as young as 13, were placed in adult mental health units last year, underscoring a severe lack of appropriate care facilities for youth.

Funding Shortfall

The New South Wales Mental Health Alliance calls for increased government funding, highlighting that mental health receives only 6.5% of the state’s health budget, despite a demonstrated need for at least 15%.

Strategic Solutions

It is important on being strategic and tactical in addressing mental health issues. Proposals include incentivizing psychiatrists to work in underserved areas, expanding tele health services, and potentially leveraging AI technology to improve access and care quality.
