The National Mental Health Commission Sixth National Report

The National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) has released its sixth national report - Monitoring Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Reform - National Report 2018.

The report considers the status of Australia's core national mental health and suicide prevention reforms, and their impact on the wellbeing of consumers and carers.

The National Report highlights progress in mental health reforms across Australia; the key reforms covered in the report, which the NMHC will continue to monitor and report on, are the NDIS, PHN's, physical health, the mental health workforce and the Fifth Plan.

This report is only one mechanism that the NMHC will be using to monitor and report on Australia's mental health and suicide prevention systems, and will separately report on the progress of implementation of the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan.

NMHC will submit the report to COAG on 12th October 2018.
