Review of Existing Mental Health Services and Programmes
The Australian Government has assigned the National Mental Health Commission to conduct a national review of mental health services and programmes.
This review will examine existing mental health services and programmes across the government, private and non-government sectors. The focus of the review will be to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of programmes and services in supporting individuals experiencing mental ill health and their families and other support people to lead a contributing life and to engage productively in the community.
