Labour unveil policy providing mental health services for kids in Canterbury


Mental health seems
to be the policy of the week with National announcing its package to build resilience against
mental health in young children, but today Labour announced
their own policy which centres around providing
mental health services for kids in Canterbury. The opposition leader
was in the region today to announce her new package. Here’s Hania Douglas. The future of Canterbury. Labour has released their policy
for health totalling at $193m over three years, but a portion of that
is going specifically to help children in Canterbury
overcome quake related trauma. Recent stats have pegged NZ with some of the highest
youth suicide rates in the developed world. But Labour believes
that earthquake trauma puts Christchurch kids
at higher risk. This is the first time
political parties have put such a big focus
on children’s mental health. The flood of political policies
continue as parties keep trying
to win voters over. Hania Douglas, Te Karere.
