Environmental Scan of Mental Health Reform in Australia

Mental illness is a significant public health issue affecting Australians today; it is complex, multidimensional and affects people’s ability to fully contribute to society. While the Australian Government has placed considerable efforts into system reform to address mental illness, significant levels of mental ill-health still exist which has widespread impacts across a range of demographics.
Given the mental health challenges for Australia’s population – and specifically for the veteran population – EY has been commissioned to conduct an environmental scan of mental health reform in Australia for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA). The purpose of the engagement is to:
  1. Highlight the landmark developments in mental health programs and policy in Australia between 2013 and 2019
  2. Identify opportunities for the DVA to better align their Veteran Mental Health Strategy 2013 – 2023 and other mental health initiatives with the broader advancements in mental health policy in Australia.
