Monitoring mental health and suicide prevention reform: national report 2018

Mental health Suicide Policy Australia

The Commission’s sixth national report provides an analysis of the current status of Australia’s core mental health and suicide prevention reforms, and their impact on consumers and carers. 

The 2018 report shows progress and outcomes of key national reforms in mental health, including reporting on the Primary Health Networks, the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Suicide Prevention initiatives and the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan. The report also considers the mental health performance of the system by looking at mental health expenditure, workforce, seclusion and restraint, consumer and carer engagement and participation and mental health outcomes. It also looks at social determinants of health and how they impact mental illness.
