All Resources Environmental Scan of Mental Health Reform in Australia
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:
Highlight the landmark developments in mental health programs and policy in Australia between 2013 and 2019
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.
