MHCA/beyondblue Submission to the Treasury consultation on Unfair Terms in Insurance Contracts 2010

The MHCA and beyondblue call on the Australian Government to end the unfair treatment of people with a mental illness by insurers.  What is sought in this submission is a more reasonable assessment of the risks associated with mental illness, a greater understanding of mental illness from the insurance sector and greater respect for mental health consumers.
