Vision 2030 Key Concepts Consultation

Closed 6 Dec 2019

Opened 15 Nov 2019


As someone who engaged with the National Mental Health Commission during the Connections Project, we are inviting you to review the key concepts of the upcoming Vision 2030 for Mental Health and Suicide Preventiona consultation paper.

As part of the Connections project, we connected with over 3000 people, who shared their expertise and provided invaluable input to shape a future mental health and suicide prevention system that meets the needs of Australians. The Commission has now consolidated input from communities and stakeholders to form the key concepts of Vision 2030 for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

The purpose of the Vision 2030 is to provide a high level agenda, which demonstrates the goals and objectives for mental health and the systems or services which may meet these. Following Vision 2030, a Roadmap will be developed in 2020, which identifies the long-term strategies in investment, coordination, development and performance measurement required to achieve the Vision and meet goals and objectives for mental health.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this short survey. Your input will help in further developing our design for a more connected and well-functioning system.
