Mental Health Reform
On 26 November 2015, the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was joined by the Minister for Health, the Hon Sussan Ley MP to announce a much anticipated response to the National Mental Health Commission’s Review of Mental Health Programmes and Services.
In this response, the Australian Government outlined a framework for reform of Australia’s mental health system.
Following over three years of dedicated policy and advocacy activity from Mental Health Australia, its members and mental health consumer and carers, this announcement has been welcomed as the beginning of much needed systemic change in mental health in Australia.
