The New Zealand Medical Association welcomes New Zealand’s first Wellbeing Budget which will improve the lives of families most in need.  In particular we welcome the investment of $1.9 Billion in Mental Health and Addiction and the new frontline service for mental health.

“Having trained mental health workers in our doctors’ clinics, iwi health providers and other health services will make a positive difference in all our communities and means we can tailor to the needs of the individual and the whanau” says Dr Jan White Chair of the NZMA GP Council.
