The NMHSPF project commenced in 2011 as a commitment under the Fourth National Mental Health Plan to “develop a national service planning framework that establishes targets for the mix and level of the full range of mental health services”. Researchers from Policy and Epidemiology Group were involved in the first phase of NMHSPF development led by the New South Wales Ministry of Health, providing advice and expertise through the NMHSPF expert working groups and completing commissioned research on specific topics.
Since 2016 the Policy and Epidemiology Group has led a program of work to review and refine the NMHSPF, and to train and support mental health planning staff within state and territory health departments, Primary Health Networks (PHNs), and Local Hospital Networks (LHNs) to understand and use the NMHSPF for their planning. In 2018, the research team was funded to undertake a three-year project for the ongoing development and maintenance of the NMHSPF.
