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.

Benefits to your business

Verification of compliance with the National Standards for Mental Health services is a requirement of licensing for mental health units in many states in Australia.
