WHO MiNDbank: More Inclusiveness Needed in Disability and Development

A database of resources covering mental health, substance abuse, disability, general health, human rights and development

Australia (National): Mental Health Policies

This section contains ‘stand alone’ mental health policies as well as general health and disability policies, where these have integrated mental health issues in a substantial way.  The absence of ‘stand alone’ mental health policy or the absence of general health or disability policy covering mental health in a substantial way, does not mean that mental health is not at all covered in a country’s general health or disability policies.
