Monitoring and Reporting Framework on mental health and suicide prevention

The National Mental Health Commission is developing a new Monitoring and Reporting Framework for mental health and suicide prevention to guide us over the next five years (2018-22) and beyond.

We held workshops around Australia in October and November 2017 to consult and learn from participants’ diverse experience and collective expertise.

We also conducted a targeted consultation with the National Mental Health Consumer and Carer Forum.

Online community consultation

Further to the face-to-face workshops, we sought public input via an online survey. Open for five weeks, its purpose was to collect information from consumers, carers, families and support people, service providers, policy and decision makers regarding Australia’s mental health and suicide prevention.

Next steps

The executive and key internal staff at the Commission oversee the project and receive guidance from an Advisory Committee whose members have been appointed on the basis of their expertise, and as individuals.

In early 2018, the Commission and Advisory Committee will consider the draft Framework and implementation plan which will incorporate findings from the national consultations.



“We strive to continually improve the mental health system so people lead contributing lives with the right supports at the right time.”

Dr Peggy Brown AO, CEO
National Mental Health Commission
