Our National Report Cards

2017 National Report on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

We are pleased to present the National Mental Health Commission’s 2017 National Report on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

This year, we are reporting on the outcomes of our engagement with stakeholders and the work of the Commission to help shape a mental health system that can respond to peoples’ needs more effectively.

We are currently in the process of developing a new monitoring and reporting framework which will guide our future reports. This framework will also enable us to consider national reform in mental health and suicide prevention through the lens of consumers and carers, and their experiences. We look forward to bringing you a new approach to our reporting in 2018.

A Contributing Life: the 2016 National Report on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

In the 2016 National Report, we consider the factors that will lay the foundations for the Commission’s future monitoring and reporting. As done in our previous reports, we share the experiences of people, families and support people so that we can better understand the things that affect their lives and how we can help shape a mental health system that can respond to people’s needs more effectively.  We also share examples of the overwhelming good work that is being undertaken in improving mental health outcomes and reducing suicide across Australia. 

A Contributing Life: the 2014 Report Back on the 2012 and 2013 National Report Cards on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

In 2014 the Commission was directed by Government to undertake the National Review of Mental Health Programmes and Services and consequently, a Report Card for 2014 was not produced.  However, we made a commitment to report back to the community.  This document provides a Report Back on the eighteen recommendations made in the first two Report Cards.

Responses from non-government organisations and government agencies contributions to the 2014 Report Back are available in the Supplementary Paper.

A Contributing Life: the 2013 National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Our second Report Card builds upon the foundations and whole of life scope established in our inaugural Report Card in 2012. This report card reflects the community’s voice on the issues in mental health and suicide prevention that matters most to them.

A Contributing Life: the 2012 National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Our first Report Card casts an independent eye over how we as a nation support the estimated 3.2 million Australians each year who live with a mental health difficulty, their families and support people, and how we provide and co-ordinate the services they need.
