The union’s Tim Jacobson says it became clear another $2.3 million will be slashed from mental health services, on top of $5.7 million previously announced.
Mr Jacobson says $800,000 of savings will be made by achieving state office efficiencies and $1.6 million in operational staffing efficiencies.
“The two savings strategies clearly go to staffing. We know that in mental health the lion share of staffing is in frontline services.”
