Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1999 Week 12 Hansard (24 November) . . Page.. 3662..

MR MOORE (continuing):

temporary staff positions. This will alleviate in the short term, the consistent and unrelenting demand for service and allow CAMHS to examine, assess and plan for reform or development in other areas.

A major increase in staff will be considered in the 2000-2001 Budget. The Government also considers that a further review of staffing levels would be useful 12 months after the implementation of the proposed staff increases.

Measures that require additional funding will be examined in the 2000-2001 Budget context. Other issues such as improved consultation, the formation of an Inter-agency child and adolescent mental health forum and medical definitions are supported by the Government and can be implemented by ACTMHS with no budgetary impact.

As I am sure Members will agree, child and adolescent mental health is a crucial part of our health system.

I commend the Government Response to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Ms Tucker) adjourned.
