Welcome to the National Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Report Card Survey
The National Mental Health Commission was established on 1 January 2012 to give mental health a high profile at a national level, and increase transparency and accountability in mental health services and supports.
The Commission's core responsibility is to produce a National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention annually, with the first one due by the end of 2012. The Report Card will monitor whether services and support systems are working effectively to deliver good outcomes for people experiencing mental health difficulties or suicide risk, their families and carers.
The Commission would like your views on what should be in the Report Card. What information, if reported, do you think would make the biggest difference to drive change and improvement?
Your opinions and input will help to shape the first and future Report Cards, and identify key challenges at this early stage.
This survey will only take you a few minutes to complete, depending on how much you write. The survey will stay open until May 31st 2012.
Thank you for your support and your interest in this important initiative. Further information about the Commission is available at the National Mental Health Commission website
