Information Publication Scheme

Under the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) — part of the Freedom of Information Act — the Commission publishes a wide range of information about who we are and what we do on our website.

The IPS aims to increase the transparency of Government decisions and activities. You can find out more about the IPS on the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner's website.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Commission acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands throughout Australia.
We pay our respects to their clans, and to the elders, past present and emerging, and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community.


The Commission is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services. The Commission welcomes all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Lived Experience

We acknowledge the individual and collective contributions of those with a lived and living experience of mental ill-health and suicide, and those who love, have loved and care for them. Each person’s journey is unique and a valued contribution to Australia’s commitment to mental health suicide prevention systems reform.
