Committee on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Mental Health Australia submitted a paper to the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Inquiry that has now been published in the Inquiry’s website. In that submission, Mental Health Australia reiterated our position to the Australian Government’s consultation on the Productivity Commission’s Inquiry Final Report that the Government should prioritise:

  • The development of an implementation plan for the PC Report’s recommendations including any gaps identified in the other reviews and well informed by mental health consumers, carers, and the broader sector.
  • The provision of an accompanying budgetary plan that identifies the key components of the future mental health system.
  • Immediate investment to fund the PC Report recommendations that can be implemented immediately, and to ensure continuity of funding for the psychosocial service sector.

The paper also provided a range of feedback and recommendations related to the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference.
