CCK Recommendation

Conference calls on the Australian Government to develop a national plan for Child and Adolescent Mental Health. The plan should include specific strategies addressing the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Workforce and inter-agency cooperation - specifically including information sharing between the juvenile justice, education and community services sectors. The area where the greatest cost effectiveness can be achieved is through early identification, prevention and treatment programs. The Plan will mandate funding that is weighted to the needs of rural and remote children.
