The Productivity Commission is undertaking an inquiry into mental health in Australia, and we want to put your lived experience front and centre in the input we give into this process. By including your voice we at the Consumers Health Forum (the peak body for Australia's health consumers) and National Rural Health Alliance (the peak body for rural and remote health in Australia) want to help ensure that your experiences and ideas have an impact on the direction of mental health care in Australia, and how other sectors of the economy can support better mental health outcomes.
CHF is administering this survey, and the results will be shared with the National Rural Health Alliance, with your consent. You can change that consent at the bottom of this page.
For your responses to be considered as part of the CHF submission to the issues paper, you need to submit it by Tuesday, 12 March 2019, however this survey will remain open beyond that as there are more opportunities to give input to the Productivity Commission over 2019.
If you have an account on this site (register here) you can save your draft as you go.
If you would rather put your responses in an email or Word document, or have any concerns about this survey, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, but please be aware that this would identify you. CHF can also be contacted on 02 6273 5444.

Any information submitted via email will have identifying information removed before being added to the dataset, after which our records of your email will be destroyed.
