Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested:
From October 12 changes to ACC's funding for sexual abuse counseling will mean survivors of abuse will only be eligible for ACC covered counseling if they have been diagnosed with a mental injury under the US Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Version 4 (DSM-IV). This will severely limit survivors' access to counseling.
More info in these two articles.
Meeting to organise against the funding cuts:
Monday, October 5, 5:30 pm at 128 Abel Smith St, Wellington
Any info about stuff happening in the rest of the country would be much appreciated, you can email it to me julie dot fairey at gmail if you prefer not to write a comment.
