Tackling Mental Health on a National Scale

: :

The National Mental Health Commission is visiting the Adelaide Hills today to better understand the challenges our communities face in support for mental health and suicide prevention.

Connections2022 will help inform the development of a National Outcomes-Based Framework to  help governments make policy decisions on the country's mental health and suicide prevention systems.

Commission CEO Christine Morgan joins Jennie Lenman in this podcast to discuss the tour and what she has learned so far from communities.
