National Mental Health Systems Modelling Network Secretariat: Professor Harvey Whiteford, Dr Sandra Diminic, Kate Gossip

The National Mental Health Systems Modelling Network comprises experienced stakeholders in modelling mental health services from across Australia and aims to reduce population mental illness and improve mental health outcomes through addressing the social determinants in mental health and health system design.

The National Mental Health Systems Modelling Network will do this by:

  • Creating a national network to identify opportunities for collaboration and data sharing in mental health service modelling.
  • Providing a central national reference point for expert advice and best practice in evidence-based modelling for policy and services.
  • Providing scientific peer review and recommendations to relevant parties that could be provided as tools to assist regional mental health planning.
  • Supporting implementation of evidence-based mental health planning on-the-ground.
