Better Outcomes or Better Access — which was better for mental health care?

Sebastian P Rosenberg and Ian B Hickie
Med J Aust 2012; 197 (11): 619-620. || doi: 10.5694/mja12.11247

To the Editor: Harrison and colleagues present data which confirm that inequitable distribution of mental health care is increasing under the Better Access program.1 They discount our promotion of the central role of general practitioners in the more restricted Better Outcomes program2 and our advocacy for GPs to resume those key activities despite lack of support under the Better Access program.3
