The Productivity Commission final report on its inquiry into mental health was released on 16 November.  The Commission finds that reform of the mental health system would produce large improvements in people’s quality of life and in increased economic participation.

The report makes recommendations to the Australian and state and territory governments, to improve the mental health of people of all ages and cultural backgrounds, working with people who have experience of mental illness, and with their families and carers. The recommended reforms extend across workplaces, schools and universities, the justice system, community groups and services for healthcare, psychosocial support, and housing.
