National report on mental health services

Posted 16 April 2015

Federal Minister for Health Sussan Ley has released the National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) report on the National Review of Mental Health Programmes and Services.

The review’s 25 recommendations include a reallocation of Commonwealth mental health funding from acute hospital-based services to those delivered through primary and community health services. It also recommends extending the scope of PHNs as the key vehicle for equitable planning and purchasing of mental health programs, services and integrated care pathways.
