Course Description

Presenter: Ian Hickie, Frank Quinlan and Russell Roberts

In April 2015 the National Mental Health Commission released its National Review of Mental Health Programmes and Services. The review provided

"a strong, achievable and practical plan for modernising and reforming Australia’s mental health system and ultimately improving the lives of millions of Australians".


Last month the Australian Government responded to the Review stating it aimed "to transform Commonwealth mental health funding and leadership over the next three years to achieve a more efficient, integrated and sustainable mental health system and to improve mental health service delivery for Australians".
 
What will the changes mean for mental health services and their clients in rural and remote areas?
This webinar will see three prominent mental health experts talking about the rural and remote implications of the Government's intended changes.
 
Speakers:
Ian Hickie AM, Mental Health Commissioner; Brain and Mind Centre, Sydney University
Frank Quinlan, Chief Executive Officer, Mental Health Australia
Russell Roberts, rural/remote mental health service consultant
