National Mental Health Workforce Strategy
Our Executive Manager Le Smith is a member of the National Mental Health Workforce Strategy, working to develop a 10-year mental health workforce strategy. Public consultation is open on the draft strategy until 30 September 2021.
Needs Assessment: Clinical Mental Health Workforce
We’ve drafted a needs assessment of the mental health workforce, which covers three main areas:
– access: improving access and continuity of access to essential primary health care
– quality of access: building health workforce capability
– future planning: growing the sustainability of the health workforce.
The overarching objective of the assessment is to address health workforce maldistribution, quality, and shortages in regional, rural, and remote Australia.
