Our structure

The Mental Health Commission is a government department that reports to the Minister for Mental Health.

It is led by a Commissioner, supported by four divisions:

  • Purchasing, Performance and Service Development
  • Planning, Policy and Strategy
  • Alcohol, Other Drugs and Prevention Services
  • Corporate Services

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 service support by the Commission.
