Human rights and the cultivation of user driven mental health prevention and treatment services in rural and regional Australia

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation only

Abstract

Providing voice to people at risk of mental illness and people who have experience of mental illnesses has been shown to improve the success of prevention and treatment programs. Australia’s mental health program development has historically been based on medical and government population modelling that has produced sometimes unattainable health goals, and financially unobtainable treatment. Global evidence suggests that wellbeing outcomes are better when current and potential service users are included in prevention, treatment and recovery planning and action. Using human rights and inclusive practice frameworks, this paper investigates the extent to which services and program developers are including at risk and ill people in the development of mental health prevention and treatment programs in rural and regional Australia. The paper argues for a transformation of the rural and regional Australian mental health system.
