The Mental Health Commission is a government department that reports to the Minister for Mental Health.
It is led by a Commissioner, supported by the following Divisions:
- System Development
- Strategy and Reform
- Prevent Services Management
- Support Services Management
- Treat Services Management
- Corporate Services
These Divisions form part of an interim structure that commenced on 10 August 2020. The new interim structure is aimed at ensuring the Commission is best placed to deliver outcomes for the community.
The Commission also provides support to three independent bodies, the Mental Health Advocacy Service, the Mental Health Tribunal and the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist. They operate independently but are provided with corporate services support by the Commission.
