2013 National Report Card

A Contributing Life: the 2013 National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention is our second Report Card and continues the National Mental Health Commission's commitment for change, building upon the foundations and whole of life scope established in our inaugural Report Card.

This Report Card is accompanied by a Technical Report that provides detailed commentary on the data, and a supplementary paper, Reporting Back, on the 2012 priorities and recommendations and a set of literature reviews.

The Commission has a core commitment to keeping people with lived experience at the heart of all we do. The videos from the 2013 Report Card show us the breadth of individual experiences and the impact of mental health difficulties, beyond just the facts and figures.

You can visit our YouTube channel to view these personal stories and perspectives as well as video highlights from the launch including a speech by Professor Allan Fels.
