Strategic direction

The strategic direction of the Commission is guided by the Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Services Plan 2015-2025: Better Choices. Better Lives. 

The Plan provides a roadmap for service development, transformation and expansion of mental health, alcohol and other drug services over the next ten years.

The implementation of the Plan over the next ten years will require partnerships with all key stakeholders, including all levels of Government, private and non-government, health and non-health sectors, clinicians, consumers, families and carers.

Our vision is for a Western Australian community that experiences minimal alcohol and other drug-related harms and optimal mental health.

The Commission is currently progressing four additional priority strategies/plans that will underpin the Plan. They are the:

  • Western Australian Alcohol and Drug Interagency Strategy
  • Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Accommodation and Support Strategy
  • Western Australian Mental Health Promotion, Mental Illness and Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention
  • Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Workforce Strategy
