ACT Health is currently developing the ACT Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework 2015-2025. The Framework encompasses mental health promotion, mental illness prevention (including early intervention) and suicide and self-harm prevention. The Framework is a strategic, whole of government and whole of community document.

The Mental Health Policy Unit of ACT Health will provide a brief overview of the Framework and answer any questions from the community.
