Introducing the Mental Health Reform Program

The Tasmanian Mental Health Reform Program commenced in August 2019 with the key task of implementing the recommendations from the Mental Health Integration Taskforce as endorsed by the Tasmanian Government.

The core goal of the Reform Program is to lead transformation in Tasmania that means people who live with mental health issues, in suicidal distress or with alcohol and drug problems have access to world class systems of care.

The work of the Taskforce, and the associated Reform Program, builds on the broad co-design work relating to the Tasmanian Government’s Rethink Mental Health Plan. Specifically the reform direction 4: an integrated Tasmanian Mental Health System, and direction 5: shifting the focus from hospital based care to support in the community.

The Reform Program aims to implement an integrated mental health system, including Hospital Avoidance Program (HAP), Integration Hubs and Integrated Suicide Response, which is inclusive of people with complex needs. We are working toward a Mental Health System in our state that is better resourced and provides improved social and clinical support to people who experience mental ill-health, their families and friends, and the broader Tasmanian Community.
