We are looking at

The ACT Health Directorate (ACTHD) is embarking on a new approach to commissioning community-based Non-Government Organisation (NGO) mental health services in the ACT. Working in collaboration with the mental health sector, other areas of Government and people with lived experience, we have been researching and consulting to refine our understanding of the mental health community NGO system that we want to foster in the ACT. You can access the discovery paper and listening report from our previous consultations here.

This Blueprint builds on what we have heard in previous consultations and presents ACTHD’s vision for the NGO funded mental health sector. We are seeking feedback on this blueprint and looking for ideas about how we can put the blueprint into practice.

We will use your views to

The information gathered through this consultation phase will inform the investment strategy for ACTHD’s mental health subsector commissioning. This Strategy will outline our approach to system reform as we move into the investment phase of commissioning. There will be further opportunities for targeted consultation in a range of areas, including feedback papers and workshops. More details about these activities can be found on the mentalhealth commissioning website.
