Draft National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030: Submission to Department of Health consultation

Mental Health Australia congratulated the Department of Health on the development of the Draft National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030, and particularly welcomed the inclusion of a new focus area on protecting mental health. This addition amends a significant gap raised by Mental Health Australia in our previous submission regarding the development of the Strategy.

In the current submission, Mental Health Australia suggested the Strategy be further strengthened through inclusion of targets regarding prevention of mental ill-health, in addition to the single target in the Draft Strategy regarding suicide prevention.
