Summary

Mental health services in Australia

Mental health services in Australia is an online presentation of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s (AIHW) series of annual mental health reports that describe the activity and characteristics of Australia’s health care and social care services accessed by people with a mental illness. This report provides the most recent data available on the national response of the health and welfare system to the mental health care needs of Australians.

The information in this report is constrained by the availability of comparable national data, which may result in some data overlaps and gaps in service information. As well as the data presented in the various webpages, readers can find detailed data for current and previous years in the Microsoft ® Excel workbooks attached to each section. Data are progressively published as it becomes available throughout the year.
