The community is at the heart of the Commission’s vision for a reformed mental health system. While there will always be an essential role for hospitals when people are experiencing a crisis, research evidence clearly shows people recover better when they are supported with appropriate and adequate services in their own homes and communities. The Commission works to foster projects and relationships that promote a community focus in mental health support, including between different tiers of government.
