Mental Health - Liberal Democrats WA

Mental Health

As Liberal Democrats, we believe in accountability, not dependency.  As a result, we promote a health policy which represents a responsible balance between the need to curtail government interference in people’s management of their own health, with the need to continue to offer assistance while a culture of independence and civil society takes root.

We support the privatisation of public hospitals, including those specialising in mental health, while acknowledging that some high-security facilities will need to be maintained by government in the short and medium term.
