About the Mental Health Network

The Mental Health Network was launched in 2014 by the Western Australian Department of Health and the Mental Health Commission. 

The Network aims to improve health outcomes for people with mental health issues by building engagement, co-operation and consensus between consumers, families, carers, health professionals, hospitals, health services, community managed organisations, the Mental Health Commission and the Department of Health to inform mental health policy and reform, and to strengthen and increase coordination of mental health care across the State.

The Mental Health Network is WA’s 18th health network and includes ten sub networks.

On 1 July 2017, the governance of the Mental Health Network transferred from the Department of Health to the Mental Health Commission (external site).
