We're working for Western Australia.

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 Mental Health Commission's strategic direction is also guided by the following:

The Mental Health Commission is currently progressing additional priority strategies/plans that will underpin the Plan, including the:

  • Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Workforce Strategic Framework 2019-2025.
  • new Suicide Prevention Framework

Nationally, there is the Fifth National Plan for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, the National Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan, National Drug Strategy (and its sub-strategies for alcohol, other drugs, Aboriginal people and workforce development), as well as progress towards Vision 2030.
