The Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Services Plan 2015-2025
The Western Australian Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Services Plan 2015-2025 (the Plan) outlines a comprehensive package of reforms to reshape the delivery of services to Western Australians with mental health, alcohol and other drug problems.
A first of its kind for the State, the Plan sets a bold agenda to create a more connected, high quality and person-centred system focused on the provision of holistic care and support.
It provides a targeted and phased approach to investment over the next 10 years to deliver the optimal mix and level of services to meet the needs of the current and future population. This includes an increase in hospital beds and specialist care, a shift towards the provision of more services in the community and enhanced programs and strategies that prevent mental illness, reduce drug and alcohol-related harm, and that intervene early to reduce the development of serious illness.
