Broader system reform

Mental health is influenced by a wide-range of individual, social and environmental factors.

Reforms and service enhancements across many sectors such as education, housing, employment, justice and communities can enhance mental health and wellbeing.

The Commission supports a whole-of-government and cross-sectoral approach, that increases the capacity of all agencies to prevent mental illness through policy, program and service development which helps promote physical and mental health, and reduce the incidence and impact of mental illness.

Effective outcomes require collective effort across sectors.
