Mental Health Improvement Group

Meeting Code HRT1712

The aim of this Group is to improve the provision of safe mental health services by sharing information on implementing innovative and effective practices. The group receives a series of annual reports that contain both inpatient and community data as well as some outcome measures. Separate reports are provided for adults, aged and CAMHS services. Members share information at an annual workshop.

The 2017 workshop will focus on the special topic of "Addressing the strategic imperatives in Mental Health - workforce, change, ABF and outcomes". Members will share information on a broad range of topics including how to address workforce issues; how to respond to change; how to respond to the new ABF requirements and best practice in measurement of outcomes.

Members will share information about their practical experiences and innovations.
