    The Tasmanian Mental Health Reform Program (TMHRP) commenced in August 2019 with the key task of implementing the recommendations from the Mental Health Integration Taskforce as endorsed by the Tasmanian Government.

    To read the Taskforce Report and Recommendations and the Government Response please see the links below:

    The work of the Taskforce, and the associated TMHRP, builds on the broad co-design work relating to the Tasmanian Government’s Rethink Mental Health Plan, particularly reform directions 4 (An integrated Tasmanian Mental Health System) and 5 (Shifting the focus from hospital based care to support in the community) identified within that document (Rethink).

    The Reform Program aims to implement an integrated mental health system, including Hospital Avoidance Program (HAP), Integration Hubs, Integrated Suicide Response, which is inclusive of people with complex needs. We are working toward a Mental Health System that is better resourced and provides better social and clinical support to consumers, their families and the broader Tasmanian Community.

    In knowing that this is the largest mental health reform Tasmania has seen in recent times, the TMHRP team would like to invite you to an Information Session to learn more about the progress that has been made to date, meet the team and to answer any questions you may have.
