In order to truly understand the progress towards improving mental health and suicide prevention in Australia, the National Mental Health Commission (NMHC) is seeking feedback from mental health consumers and carers on how mental health services may or may not have improved in the past 12 months since implementation of the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan commenced.
This survey should take between 10 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on how much information you’d like to provide. You do not need to give your name to complete the survey, and your answers will be kept confidential and anonymous.
You can save your responses and return to the survey at any time up until the closing date, using the save and return link provided.  You will need to provide your email address if you choose to save and return. If you do not wish to provide your email address, you will not be able to save and return to your answers, and you will need to start the survey again.
How we will use your responses
We appreciate your time and honesty. Your answers are valuable to the NMHC and will help us to monitor and report on efforts to improve mental health and suicide prevention in Australia.
