$122m boost for mental health services in South Australia

On January 15, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Health Minister Greg Hunt announced details of a $1.45 billion national funding package for mental health services.

South Australia will receive an estimated $122 million of this package, distributed to the Adelaide and Country SA Primary Health Networks to ensure services are tailored for the specific needs of the local population.

Sonder has been selected by the Adelaide Primary Health Network as the preferred provider to deliver mental health services in the northern and central western suburbs. This is in addition to services delivered by Sonder in the Country SA Primary Health Network region; the Gawler-Barossa corridor.

Sonder delivers a range of mental health services that are relevant to the needs of the local community, delivering services across the age range and complexity of mental health concerns. Sageran Naidoo, CEO at Sonder explains “Sonder warmly welcomes this announcement as it ensures certainty of funding to the PHNs and we at Sonder are hoping that this level of certainty flows through to service providers of mental health services.”

Mr Naidoo continued “This announcement provides reassurance that our community members can continue to receive the services they require.”
