National Standards for Mental Health Standards.
Verification of compliance with the NSMHS demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to optimal patient, carer and community experience.
The National Standards for Mental Health Services set best practice and guide quality improvement in mental health services. They form a structure to support your organisation’s response to the needs, rights, responsibilities and expectations of consumers, as well as of carers and service personnel.
The standards can be applied to all mental health services, including government, non-government and private sectors across Australia.
