Implementation guidelines for non-government community services

Information to guide implementation of the national standards for mental health services by non-government community services.

Page last updated: 2010

Back to:

The guide provides more detail about the implementation of the national standards and how they apply to your service. It is one of three guideline documents developed by and for different sector groups. The other two are for:
  • public mental health services and private hospitals
  • private office based mental health services.
The guidelines were developed with input and recommendations from:
  • the alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD) sector
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community sector
  • mental health consumers and carers.
The recommendations from these groups have been incorporated into the three implementation guidelines.
