Prime Minister John Howard has allocated $1.1 billion in health reforms. But his off-handed statement has outraged mental health groups.
Mr. Howard said that there was more mental illness previously which we are not aware off and hence the best thing is to move on with one's life.
This comment was labeled as being very insensitive, offensive and ill-informed.
She said that this was the attitude people had despite the latest technologies and awareness among the people regarding mental illness.
Hence we are trying to change this attitude among the common man.
