MHiMA Project Updates
Mental Health Australia was engaged by the Department of Health to manage the MHiMA Project until 31 December 2016. Key tasks during this timeframe included analysing the activities, arrangements and outputs of the most recent Project (to 30 June 2015, managed by another entity), and making recommendations to the Australian Government Department of Health about future directions for the MHiMA Project. In late March 2016 Mental Health Australia submitted a recommendations report to the Department of Health about the future of the Project, which can now be accessed with all associated attachments here.
In late November 2016 and in response to our recommendations report, the Minister for Health advised that the Australian Government will continue to support the MHiMA Project beyond December 2016, and a targeted competitive approach to market will be undertaken in 2017 to determine the most appropriate project lead for the longer term.
Future updates on the MHiMA Project will be shared through the Mental Health Australia CEO Weekly Update as they arise. If you would like to stay updated on the MHiMA Project, please sign up here (free subscription).
