On Tuesday 5 May Commissioner John Feneley attended the launch of the Western Sydney Partners in Recovery Mental Health Atlas, a new tool to plot the scope of mental health services across western Sydney.
At the launch John spoke of the lack of integration of mental health services, which can be difficult to navigate for consumer, carers and even service providers themselves.
“The Strategic Plan for Mental Health in NSW highlights the importance of integrated community-based care and local action for reform.
“The Mental Health Atlas is a major step forward in facilitating local action that will benefit the lives of people who experience mental health issues. We need tools like these to be able to see what our services look like now in order to monitor positive change in the future,” John said.
