The Government’s ten year mental health strategy, Living Well, sets a direction to improve and reform mental health for all. At the halfway point in this decade long strategy, the Commission is looking back at the first five years to see how the reforms have progressed, in order to see where government should focus over the next five years. 

The views of people with lived experience of mental health issues and caring, families and kinship groups, the mental health sector, and the wider community are essential in this work, which is why we have created the online Living Well mid-term review survey.

By taking part in the survey we will be able to understand your issues and perspectives and include those together with everything else we have learned from community consultations, reviewing changes in services and programs, and considering mental health trends and research that relate to enabling people to live well.

With your input the Commission will be able to provide the Minister for Mental Health with clear directions on the future priority areas for Living Well, informed by lived experience, the community and those working to improve the mental health and wellbeing of people.

Your contributions are valuable to us, so please take a few minutes to fill in the survey and share it with your contacts, colleagues and networks so a strong community voice can inform this important work.

The survey will be open until mid-September 2019.
