Fund for mental health innovation
The Government is putting $1.2 million towards a pilot Mental Wellbeing Innovation Fund.
Health Minister Andrew Little says it’s part of the push for a greater focus on care in the community, and more emphasis on prevention and early intervention.
He says the fund is a way to support requests from non-government organisations, iwi and other groups to support mental wellbeing initiatives that do not fit into existing tenders.
A small number of organisations will be invited to participate in a closed selective tender.
