Key Performance Indicators for Australian Public Mental Health Services

A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measure that describes a situation concisely, helps track progress and performance and acts as a guide to inform decision making. KPIs in the public mental health sector cover different aspects of services. They can inform consumers', service providers' and funders' impressions of service and service performance.

The Third edition of the Key Performance Indicators for Australian Public Mental Health Services (MHS KPIs) was published by the National Mental Health Performance Subcommittee in 2014. The MHS KPIs were developed to improve accountability and transparency. Of the 15 indicators developed to address the Health System Performance tier (Tier 3) of the National Mental Health Performance Framework, 13 indicators are published annually, arranged below using the domains of the framework, with the source data available for download below.
