Mental Health Commission releases review of services

The Mental Health Commission review of mental health services and programmes has been released

On Thursday 16th April, the National Mental Health Commission released its long awaited National Review of Mental Health Programmes and Services; a review that was handed to the Australian Government in November of 2014.

The ultimate goal of this Review was to make a set of recommendations for Government to consider, that will create a system to support the mental health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities in ways that enables people to live contributing lives and participate as fully as possible as members of thriving communities.

This included programmes and services which have as a main objective:

The Review provides 25 recommendations across nine strategic directions which guide a detailed implementation framework of activity over the next decade. Taken together, they form a strong, achievable and practical plan to reform Australia’s mental health system.

The Review is framed on the basis of making changes within existing resources, as specified by the Terms of Reference provided to the Commission by the Commonwealth Government.
